Wabash Center of Inquiry Scholar on MPR

Charlie Crowley ’70 sent in this heads up  this week: 

“Yesterday I’m driving back to my office from my Minnesota Habilitation Coalition meeting listening to my public radio station when I learn one of the presenters for the discussion is from Wabash College.  Sure enough there was William Sullivan: Co-author of “Rethinking Undergraduate Business Education” and Senior Scholar at the Center for Inquiry in the Liberal Arts at Wabash College

It seems that there is some thought that a liberal arts education may be a good foundation for a successful business career!  Go figure!!”

Sullivan is also the director of Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers.   To hear the interview on Minnesota Public Radio, click here

Thanks for the news, Charlie!

New Class Agents – Class of 2012

Tyler Wade '12 and Kyle Bender '12

We’re proud to announce that Tyler Wade ’12 and Kyle Bender ’12 have been selected as the Class Agents for the class of 2012.  We had a number of guys volunteer from the class and, as has been the case often, selecting the new agents was a challenge.

You’ll probably remember Tyler and Kyle from the inaugural Road Trip of 2011.  Took that photo as they were driving through another college campus in Indiana.

All the best to the Class of 2012 and their class agents.
