Over the past couple of years, I’ve spent some time getting to know the people at the World in Conversation project, the brainchild of sociology instructors Sam Richards and Laurie Mulvey ’94g. I’m finally reporting the story about the program this semester—it will be published in an upcoming issue, mid- to late 2014—and I wanted to share something I watched Monday as I sat in on a class with the student facilitators, who lead dialogues among students of various races, genders, and ethnicities. It’s a video from the Cleveland Clinic, and it’s not a spoiler to say that the theme is empathy.

I found it powerful. Hoping it makes you think about your day, too.
