What I Do
The vision of the Flint Campus of the
At a university, students enter a series of interrelated conversations: the immediate conversation in their classrooms, the more extended conversation in their particular major disciplines, but also the “Great Conversation” that is the heritage of recorded knowledge and reflection. The books on our shelves and the digital packets in our databases represent the many voices that comprise those ongoing conversations. In that way, by ensuring that our students have access to many voices, we enable and do our part to preserve the academic tradition of free discussion, analysis, debate, and disputation.
I also serve as Director of the Master of Liberal Studies in American Culture Program, and teach Honors 252.
