Elizabeth Minnich, author of Transforming Knowledge, one of the most important and influential books about knowledge, ethics, politics and power, recently served as the external reviewer for the Individualized MA program. Minnich is Core Professor at the Graduate College for Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, The Union Institute and University, and she has spoken and consulted with colleges and universities worldwide on developing more inclusive curricula. Here’s what she had to say about Goddard’s IMA program:
