Inspirational Quote

A person who has a cat by the tail knows a whole lot more about cats than someone who has just read about them.
Mark Twain

Service-learning

“With the growth of service learning and the increased desire of college students “to make a difference”, the need for inspiring stories, course materials, and historical information has never been greater. The stories behind the development of a civil society and the critical role that citizen philanthropy has played are central to understanding our heritage in America and the richness of our communities.”

Kala M. Stroup, Ph.D., President of American Humanics (now: Non Profit Leadership Alliance) , 2002-2009, former Missouri State Commissioner of Higher Education, and former President of Southeast Missouri State University and Murray State University (Kentucky)
