a current student here
Working on my MSED is very important to me. My desire for truth, ethics, and an understanding that we are all equal and global is bundled up in a package of professors and administrators who share this vision. They open up to me when I express my concerns about myself or the concepts at hand.
It's vital that I walk with a class and recieve my diploma, in front of my two daughters in order to model what life-long learning is about. It's not just about making more money but learning more about myself and the world. This is not-for-profit school, so obviously, it's less expensive, but it holds a name, character, and rigor of any international university and goes the extra mile that many other schools demand financially, first.
