As I grew up on a farm in southern Iowa, I've always remembered my father, Grant, often quoting Will Rogers, a social commentator and entertainer well known during the early 1900s. One of Will Rogers's most famous lines, "I have never yet met a man that I didn't like". As I write about my teaching, I can honestly say that "I've never met a student I didn't like". Reflecting on one's role as an educator produces a great sense of pride. What an honor to be directly involved with a significant support mechanism for our society --Higher Education. The provision of an effective and efficient higher education provides a greater chance for upward socio-economic progress for our students, our local communities and our global community.
