Alumni: A Community of Learners

“People learn from each other.”

Minhee Kang, an alumna from 1998, briefly describes how this concept is integral to the student experience. Faculty carefully and consciously design learning experiences — in and out of the classroom — that build a community of people who learn to rely on each other as employment resources, as a professional network, and as dear friends.

This enables graduates to create similar learning conditions in their classrooms and schools, offices and agencies, and neighborhoods and families, all settings that require goodwill, effective listening, and appropriate risk-taking.

Minhee, a distinguished counselor of prospective students for many years, is now part of World Learning Training and Education Services, that develops and designs language teacher training and education projects in locations around the world, such as Afghanistan, Algeria, Brazil, Burma, Massachusetts, and South Korea.
