“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” – Aristotle
A senior business major recently shared with me that he was grateful for the education he received at Jewell. When I pressed him on why, he told me, “My professors see me as a whole person, a person who has a mind that can change the world and a heart that desires to do so.” I think he nicely captured our mission. We seek to provide a very robust education to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to do well throughout their careers. But that is not enough; we also push them to find ways they can invest in others to make their lives better. This is not always easy and impacts different students at various levels, but if we can educate both the mind and the heart the result is worth every effort. My hope is that as you read this edition of Jewell Business Today you begin to capture that vision and you, too, are motivated to do well both with mind and heart.
Sincerely, Dr. Kelli Schutte, Chair of the Department of Business and Leadership
