Niswarth’s holistic approach to learning included visits to various urban and rural communities and partnering with inspiring NGOs working with the government and corporations to meet the needs of schools. The group also worked collaboratively with students and faculty from The Riverside School on a Design For Change (DFC) project; this raised questions related to community, education, and leadership back on the Andover and Exeter campuses. Connecting knowledge, goodness, action, and reflection in a continuous cycle, we gained a sense of purpose and a sense of meaningful connection with those around us.
