Welcome to Our Blog!

Currently, eleven students from Chapman University are spending five days working on rebuilding projects in New Orleans. While the focus of the projects is on rebuilding homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the purpose of this trip – and the class in which this trip is embedded – goes beyond building physical structures; it is about building community.  As the students spend long days working on challenging construction-related tasks and late nights analyzing the many aspects of Hurricane Katrina, they are experiencing the true wrath of a storm that continues to devestate a community almost 5 years after it struck. It takes a special group of students to spend their Interterm looking at the concept of  leadership through the lens of a natural and human disaster that struck so long ago. This blog will document a small portion of their experiences.
