I was among the group convened to draft the first grant proposal to the Bush Foundation to start what has become the Kendall Center for Engaged Learning back in 1999. It has been enormously rewarding to remain involved in its programs in a variety of ways over the years, and I appreciate having had the chance to serve as a bridge to new leadership.
Thank you to everyone - faculty, staff, and administrators - who helped out throughout the 2009-10 year at the John S. Kendall Center for Engaged Learning. please click "more"
