Growth advise from an institutional leader

Today, online programs make sense, but given growing competition, few institutions have the resources to launch or scale them alone. Take Duquesne University, for example. When Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow arrived as dean of Duquesne University’s School of Nursing, its online programs were already delivering world-class instruction — however, online enrollments had leveled off.

The night before I left for my semester abroad, I was terrified. I started to worry that I wouldn’t make any friends and that I’d be missing out on all of the fun things happening back in Chapel Hill. I kept unpacking and repacking my suitcase, worried that either I hadn’t packed enough or that I packed too much. Once I arrived in Madrid, I felt a brief lapse in my fears.

Does group work in college prepare you for the real world?

Group Work

As college students we hear about the importance of group work. In fact, group work is emphasized considerably throughout many courses.

And to top it off, in this new world, sleep is like gold: precious and rare. (Oh, so precious.)
