“We’ve always made a big effort to be interdisciplinary and to be open to a variety of perspectives, but also to go beyond being open to them, to want to bring them in, because it makes for a richer environment.”

“A main benefit here was the teaching seminars. I found mistakes in my teaching that I am trying to correct. We learned a lot about how to control our breathing, move around the room, look at different people when you ask questions, how to position answers. You get to see yourself in a different light. I don’t think you can learn this sort of thing online.”
