Reflecting on an Education of the Heart: Carrie Nielsen

When asked to describe what the phrase “Education of the Heart” means to her, Carrie Nielsen, Assistant Professor of Biology said: “I teach environmental science because I want students to make connections between their actions and the world around them. In order to be the kind of people we want to be, we have to understand how we fit in with other people and the world around us. That awareness takes knowledge and critical thinking which I believe Cabrini College works to cultivate in all our students.”
