Empathy Experiment Videos – The Beginning

 It’s hard to believe it has been a year since we first launched the Empathy Experiment, a social experiment among Capital University students and partner organizations from the Central Ohio community centered on a single issue to answer a basic question: Can empathy be taught? And if so, what are the effects?


If you followed last year’s experiment and tracked our students’ experiences on this blog…





Beginning in January 2011, six Capital students will begin exploring a single social issue (to be announced) by immersing themselves in different experiences designed by community partners.
