"I try to bring as much of the world as I can into the classroom, but there is no substitute for actually being there," says Politics & History Professor, Dr. Grant Burrier. Dr. Burrier, whose expertise is Central and South American culture, oversees the Cuban Politics and Culture Study Tour, which allows students to experience Cuba up close.
Social media has become a critical part of the Public Relations curriculum at Curry, a concentration that Professor Kirk Hazlett oversees, and knows he needs to represent authentically. "If I'm going to stand in front of the classroom and tell students about the importance of using social media for public relations, I better be able to show them that I'm using it and using it well," says Hazlett.
Dr. Kristen Getchell has a passion for writing, and she has shared that passion with college students of all ages. But she has an extra special place in her heart for her first-year students.
Dr. Susan LaRocco originally joined Curry College as a temporary faculty member in the Division of Nursing with the notion that she would be teaching at Curry for only a year. But after the initial honeymoon period ended, Dr. LaRocco had fallen in love with the College...and she quickly found that the feeling was mutual.
Dr. Shavindrie ("Shavi") Cooray examines the relationships between humans and technology with her students by embracing technology and by looking at the bigger picture - something she has done extensively in her Ph.D. research and as a former analyst in the corporate world.
"We believe in the philosophy of hands-on training and learning by doing. That philosophy works. At Curry, first-year students have an opportunity to get on the air within two to three weeks of arriving." - Professor Alan Frank, Communication/WMLN
Energy...It is a word that Professor Jennifer Balboni constantly uses when describing her Criminal Justice classes at Curry College. "I tell my students at the beginning of each semester, 'In my class, I need you to bring your 'A' game...everyday.' We really do take it to another level."
"What I love most about video is the ever-changing uses for the skill set," says Gibbs. "Today video is the key source of information and entertainment on the Internet, and it is giving this generation of students hundreds of new employment choices."
"Literature is a force to help people open their eyes and expand their thinking," says Allan Hunter, professor of English and Honors. "The stories we discuss in class nudge students to examine the important issues that everyone faces. Literature helps us sort out life. It helps us think more clearly. And when we think more clearly, we write better and we communicate better."
Mathematics Professor Tracy Wang has always tried to give her students a sense of what life is like in her native China. But she recognized the distinct difference between telling and showing.
When Assistant Professor of Communication Jeff Lemberg arrived at Curry College, part of his charge was moving the program curriculum into the multimedia world - a world that has become increasingly important, especially within the media industry, and one that demands a broad set of skills for success.
