  1. The information from Hart Research Associates would certainly be helpful in convincing students of the relevance of this style of teaching and learning, and I’m pleased to see that so many employers profess to value things like ethics, intercultural skills, global knowledge, and community involvement. What I’d like is a way to draw attention to these positives without contributing to the trend that state and community colleges are vocational training for corporations and similar institutions. We probably should equally, if not more forcibly, stress the idea that the students are here to become more self-aware and better human beings, particularly as some of them will one day soon assume leadership positions making ethical decisions that will affect them and their communities. Of course, I think it’s possible to hit on all these points sufficiently over the course of a semester.
