Service is now a major component of most universities—for students as well as professors. Dream of a Nation can serve as a starting point for your studies on civic engagement. Use Dream of a Nation articles to brainstorm potential service you and your students can give to your community. Or use our discussion questions to talk about the various methods and issues inherent in service. Dream of a Nation articles are written by people who engage in service as a matter of livelihood and therefore readers will benefit from many lifetimes of experience and insight into community and collaboration practices.
