Assistant Professor of Political Science
Emmanuel has a terrific sense of community which encourages students to get involved in activities outside the classroom, and that's inspiring to me. I have experienced this first-hand advising the Model U.N. Club, which is a fantastic opportunity because it so closely connects with Emmanuel's educational mission by enabling our students to be engaged in the world around them.
Emmanuel also presents a great opportunity to students through the College's faculty-student research initiatives, which allows undergraduates to work closely with professors and assist in their respective research. This is an academic experience that only graduate students gain in most colleges and universities. I have worked with three excellent students, who contributed research to a number of conference papers and presentations.
Both the Model U.N. competitions and faculty-student research are prime examples of how Emmanuel students are able to combine classroom learning with real-world experiences. The result is a high-level academic experience that sets students off on the path towards their goals.
