Summer 2019: Living a Life of Service

We all make an impact on the people in our lives and the world around us. Small gestures of kindness and a willingness to approach the unfamiliar with empathy, humility, and curiosity can have far-reaching effects. But then there are the people who dedicate their lives to humanity. They have a vision for a more just and equitable world, and the courage and determination to implement real and lasting change.

In this special issue of Arches, we continue to explore the meaning of success by telling the stories of alumni who have achieved it on their own terms, with a focus on those who strive to make an impact. From a small Texas border town to cities in China, India, and the Pacific Northwest, operating as individuals or within nonprofits and government agencies, these alumni are working to make a difference in the lives of others.
