Why USD?

I am dedicated to promoting educational equity with informative data and applied research, which is aligned with USD’s mission. The students attending USD’s online program are from different backgrounds which allow the discussions and interactions between students to be very meaningful. I enjoyed the teaching a lot.

Advice for Future Students?

Please bring the full you to the class and engage with other students. Online courses provide you with more opportunities to self-pace your learning and organize your thinking, but no less opportunities to engage in learning or interact with your professor or your peers.
