Roosevelt Review

As I enter my third academic year at Roosevelt University, I am reminded that this fall we celebrate the 70th anniversary of our move to the beautiful Auditorium Building in downtown Chicago. In September 1947, classes began here with 5,000 students, a roster of talented professors and staff, and a growing national reputation as a progressive college deeply committed to social justice and equal educational opportunity for all.

Do I teach psychology or do I teach students? It is the kind of question that I believe teachers must ask if they are to prepare students for lives as socially conscious citizens.

As a junior, Siva Sarinas took Families and Children 305 with Roosevelt adjunct psychology professor Barbara Ackles, who required her students to work in the field as part of the course.

“You’re able to have that closeness to your professors, where you feel like you're all working together, not ‘Here’s my professor and here's us.' I think it's neat to feel like we're all working together to accomplish something.”
