Turning sympathy to empathy

In November 2010, Capital University launched a unique social experiment to find out if empathy can be taught.

It was such a success that Capital has brought the concept back for a second year with a new issue: nutrition in America.

Through a range of experiences, students who were selected for the experiment will be challenged to deepen their understanding of the issue and walk a mile in someone else’s shoes for the next several months.
