“I chose to teach at Corban University, with the hopes of preparing counselors who would become agents of change: ethical, caring, competent, and above all, Christ-like. I believe that Corban is positioned for leadership in bringing justice, fairness, peace, and understanding to a very troubled world, and would like to be part of that change.”
