“In an ideal world, every student would take a Calderwood Seminar, perhaps as a sort of spring tonic just before graduation. Academic forms are important. Students need to learn how to write formal arguments, and how to organize and document supporting evidence. But offering this Calderwood taught me that, by the end of four years of high school and then college, many students have lost the ability to be playful as writers, or how to communicate effectively to someone other than a professor.”
– Kevin Gustafson, dean of the Honors College, Northern Arizona University
