A word from Dr. Marie Morris
Today's typical college student has grown up during a time of relative peace and prosperity. Today’s youth generally have limited life experiences with which to build adaptive capacity or to understand the true value of partnering with others. We know that there is intense and rapid growth between 18-22 years of age– a prime time for growth through discovery and meaning making where our young are forming their values and life commitments. We know that this generation learns best by engaging all of their senses as they are making meaning of the world around them We know that through the “real world experiences” we can offer our students more than just a “make believe” learning environment as we educate the head. heart, and hands.
