Be the change you wish to see in the world.
Director of Undergraduate Studies
"We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world."
"Never doubt that a small group of committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
- Magaret Mead
"If we are to achieve a richer culture, in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place."
- Magaret Mead
"I'm a pessimist because of intelligence, but an optimist because of will."
- Antonio Gramsci
"Power is not of a man. Wealth does not center in the person of the wealthy. Celebrity is not inherent in any personality. To be celebrated, to be wealthy, to have power requires access to major institutions."
- C. Wright Mills
"The Philosophers have interpreted the world in different ways. What matters is changing it."
- Karl Marx
"The border became for me no longer a boundary line between two countries but rather a space of identity, a way of being."
- R. Aida Hernandez Castillo
"Objectivity is not about dis-engagement, but about mutual and usually unequal structuring, about taking risks in a world where 'we' are permanently mortal, that is, not in 'final control'."
- Donna Haraway
Director of Graduate Studies
"Vulnerability and inequality are a cumulative process, but there are always ways out."
- Glen H. Elder, Jr
"For education among all kinds of men [humans] always has had, and always will have, an element of danger and revolution, of dissatisfaction and discontent."
- W.E.B. DuBois, The Souls of Black Folk
"What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset."
- Blackfeet Tribe
Director of Internships
Advisor for Minor in Community Leadership
"Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Questioning the ostensibly unquestionable premises of our way of life is arguably the most urgent of services we owe our fellow humans and ourselves."
- Zygmunt Bauman
"The crisis consists precisely in the fact that the old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear"
"America's future will be determined by the home and the school. The child becomes largely what he is taught; hence we must watch what we teach, and how we live."
- Jane Addams
"The future never belongs to the youth but belongs to all individuals caught in the cumulation of trivial decisions."
- Bill Burch
"When we give proper weight to local conditions, any generalization is a working hypothesis, not a conclusion."
- Lee Cronbach, 1975
