Students as an Integrated Whole

Viewing students as an integrated whole requires higher education to consider the interactions of student, school, and life. This integration of school and life of a student was highlighted at a convocation ceremony I attended, where a student spoke to her studies and the value she attached to them as she detailed her ten-year journey to graduation. From her first years as a young student out of high school, to an unwanted pregnancy and the death of her mother the experience of her education forever changed her life and her life forever changed how she experienced her education.
