 “To me, experiential education on top of a fine classical academic curriculum is a very natural way to inspire students to see where their studies are going and to prepare them for success after graduation whether it is a job and/or further education. I often say that higher education done this way is like rowing the boat with both oars.”
~ Provost Jim Stellar
