At our university about 40% of the full-time faculty members are 55 years of age or older, which led me to consider what a difference they could make in this world if, upon retirement, they used their knowledge, skills, and talents to benefit others. Four dimensions that can serve to differentiate effective from ineffective educators and people were used as the framework to profile three individuals and the work they are doing to benefit others. These dimensions include building community, opportunity, and relationships, and developing people as good citizens. For this discussion, I chose to profile individuals who are not being paid for the work they are doing to benefit others.
