How should a college advertise in today’s culture?
“I think colleges have to sell the experience,” says Melissa McCreery, Vice President of Development at Kilns College in Bend, OR. Some people argue that college has been rendered obsolete by the internet, but while the internet is informative, it cannot train people to think or discern. “A true education helps you develop those skills that help you decipher real information from what’s not real, what’s propaganda or someone’s opinion.”
How do justice and everyday life intersect?
Is justice an action? A series of actions? An end? Or a means to an end? “It’s something that’s woven through our entire life,” says Melissa McCreery, Vice President of Development at Kilns College in Bend, OR. We don’t simply do something good or meet a quota of doing good and call it a day; instead, justice is something we live with every moment of every day. “That’s going to bring about action, because you’re trying to live your life that way.”
