The Baltimore Free University is  great example of a community-driven initiative. Participants were not just Hopkins students because courses were open to anyone who was interested. Course instructors were volunteers from the community and Hopkins and course offerings ran the gamut from computer literacy to martial arts. A brochure from 1975-1976 provides some insight into the expanse of the program. That year, more than 50 courses were offered and over 600 people enrolled.
