During their first week on campus, our freshman class participated in a unique interactive experience that encouraged them to build community by sharing their personal stories.

Organizers said they brought Dear World to campus because being able to work as a team is vital in engineering, and teamwork requires personal connection. Students worked with their classmates to develop their stories, then wrote a phrase from their stories on their bodies for a photo shoot with Dear World facilitators. 
Senior aerospace engineering student Connie Childs was among the current students and alumni who volunteered to share their stories as part of the event. Visit the online edition of CU Engineering to watch a Dear World wrap-up video and to listen to a podcast interview with Childs.
