““The Residency program was really unique. It’s circular: I could immediately implement techniques that I’ve learned in my classes, and my experiences in the classroom lead to questions I could ask my professors.”

The materials and experiences were up to date, relevant and applicable for growing and building on the current reality of education here in America.
