In an op-ed in The Daily Record, Renita Seabrook, associate professor in the University of Baltimore's School of Criminal Justice, writes that the citizens of Baltimore are determined to meet local problems with local solutions. Students in her Nonprofit Management and Community Leadership class—many of whom are from the city—are engaged in service learning projects, doing real, lasting work to help make Baltimore a better place.
"Like any other field, nonprofit studies encourages leaders to come forward and take their place," Seabrook writes. "It's satisfying to watch a student go from humble to striving to achieving to leading, all in the span of a few short years. It's beautiful to recognize that someone who was involved in a single neighborhood project eventually went on to an important position in government or the private sector and still holds those same core values."
