My most important contribution to the world has been the honor and privilege of teaching thousands of students since I arrived at HWS in the fall of 1986. I have so enjoyed offering different and competing perspectives on the American political system and the policy process, with the end goal of fostering a critical education for citizenship perspective among my students within the context of a liberal arts setting. I have endeavored to achieve the same goal in all of my scholarly work as well.
My main service project has been editing a book on service-learning and the liberal arts, one that features chapters by HWS faculty and administrators, who reflect on service-learning critically.
