The Cal Lutheran Experience

When students’ pathways become international, things get interesting. I love helping students recognize their own potential and to do good in the world and seeing where it takes them.

In order to discover their purpose, students need to be given an opportunity to learn about what their community and their world need, in addition to learning about what their personal strengths and passions are. I try to give them a safe place in my work with them to talk about both.

Qualitative social science research projects encourage students to get involved in social issues by offering a tool to analyze them and forcing the students to interact with those who are directly affected by the issues. Research projects help students develop skills, values and attitudes that cannot be easily developed in conventional class settings.
