Sylvia Cowan - Faculty Spotlight

Faculty Sylvia CowanProfessor and Director of the International Higher Education and Intercultural Relations Program

"The rich variety of experiences and backgrounds that students bring to the Intercultural Relations program is a constant source of stimulation and learning.  We are forced to confront our assumptions and expand our understanding of humanity in a rich and supportive environment.  Through this opportunity, perhaps we can reach beyond the limitations of our own minds and experiences, explore the unknown, touch our differences to seek common understandings, and learn more about who we really are and who we can be."
