ChoiceCenter's vision to transform our world by being outward
focused and creating an experiential learning environment that
lasts a lifetime is truly unique. After attending the courses, I
saw experiential growth, both personally and professionally - soon
after I raised the funds to start a video series on water security
and the connection to food and energy. I have many lifelong friends
who are graduates, and I can’t help but smile with love each time I
set foot in the university.
