“All of my educational experiences before coming to Shorter University had been at larger institutions – even my high school was much larger than Shorter! Over the years I’ve come to treasure the experience of seeing some of the same students repeatedly, getting to know them and getting to see them develop intellectually, and in other ways as well.
I’ve also enjoyed the challenge of teaching a wide variety of courses, including many that are well outside the areas I studied and specialized in as a student or as a young economist. As a result I’ve come to appreciate the breadth of Economics, and its unique depth and importance as an academic discipline.
It’s also been a treat for me to develop friendships and working relationships with professors in fields as varied as Accounting, Biology, History and Music, which probably wouldn’t have happened anyplace else.”
