Bringing together varying backgrounds and expertise, representatives from two of UCI’s community partners Corazon and Breakthrough San Juan Capistrano together with staff from the UCI School of Social Ecology Field Study Program, address how students benefit from learning about empathy through hands-on experiences in classrooms, volunteering, community and civic engagement or service-learning. Come together for a conversation to discuss best practices, practical application, and inspiration. Empathy is a skill that is not inherit to everyone but a soft skill everyone benefits from. We want to educate and support the growth of our students learning experiences to develop and exhibit empathy. This session will include self-reflection, discussion as a group, while being interactive and encouraging participants to have one actionable item that they can measure and take away with them.“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and help them become what they are capable of being”—Goethe
