Meetings with Students
Over my 13 years, I have had many meetings with students.
We discuss theology, course offerings, faculty members in other schools, pastoral assignments and so forth.
The current chair and vice-chair of our Board–Clyde Taylor and Sheila Garcia–think that the students are most important. And so they are. Student Board representatives now speak at each meeting of the Board of Trustees.
I mention this because this morning I am having coffee with a student who took my course on spiritual ecumenism a few years back and who stays in touch. I always learn from my students–it is an advantage of teaching.
And drinking coffee is good too.
