The Dream Project is both a unique non-profit and a course unlike any other offered on campus. Students receive two credits for their participation in the Dream Project, for attending weekly visits to high schools, submitting reflection papers and assignments, and participating in the weekly lecture.
This 500 student class is taught by a team of four undergraduates who plan and present material, inviting guest lecturers and facilitating discussion among their peers. The class is split into two Monday lectures that address topics relevant to our work. While one lecture focuses on methods to connect with a high school student on a first meeting, the other may be discussing recent legislation that affects federal aid for undocumented student pursuing secondary education.
