My favorite memories of my graduate program revolve around meeting in the doctoral student study with Phil Stegink and John Luckner discussing strategies to change the world. These conversations spilled over into our doctoral seminars with Professor Lee Swanson. We studied and wrote together. We stayed up late preparing for comps. We argued over almost everything – statistical analyses, research studies, special education history and the law, foundations, and social justice. I appreciated so much the space the faculty created for the students to become scholars and teachers. I will always have great affection and respect for the opportunities that came our way simply because we were socialized as a community of thinkers, writers, and researchers.
