“Teaching is serious business. We have wonderfully bright and talented students . . .
They have almost unlimited potential. For most, this is their one shot at college; they
deserve nothing less than an excellent education, an academic experience that challenges
them to excel from their first day to their last. Faculty members have a responsibility to the world to coax the very best from their students because they will certainly become the next generation of leaders. Where they go from here, what they accomplish, how they
impact the world, depends in large part on how much we are able to push and nurture
their development.”

Joe Hoyle (essay, 2005)
