It’s hard to believe that November is here and our fall term is drawing to a close. It’s been an exciting time at the Institute, with a number of creative, community-driven ideas across our Ideas Lab, Hybrid@Andover, and
Learning in the World program areas. Our call for 2017-2018 fellows is out, and we look forward to receiving in new proposals.
Faculty fellows are leading continuing efforts, such as our work on mindfulness, in addition to new projects, such as an inquiry into
mental skills training for peak performance. Students are energizing campus with ideas as well, recently through the “Campus Connectors” group. We are looking forward to launching five new online and hybrid
Summer Session courses in 2017, building upon the successful debut of “Seeing in Patterns, Thinking in Code,” this past summer.
We continue to plan for new and continuing Learning in the World offerings, all the while enjoying stories we hear from students’ summer travels. One student, during the August immersion trip for “Confluence,” was reminded of Henry Ford’s words: “Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success.”
I hope you enjoy this newsletter, and continue to check our Blog and events calendar regularly. We would love to see you on campus for one of our upcoming events!
