Students in Prof. DiChiro's "Sustainable Community Action" course later applied for and received a Project Pericles Fund grant to develop the Serenity Garden with the community partner they worked with in class.
Supported by the Lang Center Natalia Choi '15 served as an intern with ITSA International, the Lang Project of Riana Shah '14.
