When I was a freshman, one of my high school teachers said, 'She's going to be a researcher—that's just what she wants to do.' This research, to me, could be life changing, and it's also something that I absolutely love.Asia Moore '20
The most important factor in helping students discover their purpose is experience. Without many experiences students aimlessly attempt to make themselves fit without passion. Providing students with a wide range of experiences, from social to academic, provides the opportunity for students to determine their passions which in turn leads to students discovering their purpose.John Villalpando
For students to grow as thoughtful and intelligent musicians requires them to be actively engaged in the creative process. For this to happen, I as a professor must cultivate an environment where, through mentorship, they apply their intellectual knowledge and inherent creativity in projects that encourage them to take risk and ask questions. These creative endeavors serve as powerful catalysts for growth and transformation within them and within myself as an artist and teacher.Michael Hart
