When asked to describe what the phrase “Education of the Heart” means to her, Theathers (Dawn) Oliver, Administrative Assistant for the Center for Teaching & Learning, said: “ An Education of the Heart is an education of transformation. An Education of the Heart teaches students how to tap into all of the resources around them to uncover the purity of their own humanity. Through this education minds are opened, passions are mentored, beliefs are strengthened, and students are transformed. An Education of the Heart paired with real life engagement prepares students to do something extraordinary to advocate for change and build stronger communities.
