There is a quiet revolution going on and the Student Development Seminar (SDS) is at the forefront of this change. We are finding new ways to teach and learn. SDS has taught us when one creates an environment of support and trust the improbable becomes probable and the impossible becomes possible.
It is ‘magic’ in it’s purest form. I call this a revolution because, after 16 years of working with college students, we have witnessed their amazing development over a very short period of time. SDS can become a launching point for them to take a close look at their life – what they value and what they need to feel happy. Over a 2 ½ day period, atop a hill overlooking the Columbia River Gorge, students examine their lives and begin to make some decisions about how they will make a positive impact in their world.
I am proud to be part of this quiet revolution. I believe the students of today have incredible potential to change our world in a very positive way. I am honored to be a sponsor and a participant in this very unique program. In it’s basic form it is very simple, yet the results are oftentimes transforming.
