Teaching & Learning

Where does teaching end and learning begin?

Here at Huron, our small class sizes, dedicated professors, and numerous immersive, student-led projects make the two inseparable.

Through a blend of active and experiential learning, our students build strong, reciprocal networks as they learn from—and teach—their professors, fellow students, and communities.

The result: an enriched educational experience as communal as it is personal. Curious, proficient scholars who feel connected to their work. A community that values and is valued by each and every member.

What can we learn from you?

  • Being accessible to my students is the biggest thing for me. I say to them, whether you’re getting an A or you’re failing, you’re always welcome in my office.

  • It’s hard to understand these things by just being in the classroom. It’s so helpful to talk to the people who are actively working on and have lived the issues that we are studying.

  • This experiential learning trip explored issues of justice, peace, equity, and sustainability. It taught me to be mindful about where the things I consume and use on a daily basis come from, and to be curious about the lives and stories of those who produce it.

  • This mentorship program provides space for the students to realize their skills, and really gets the senior students thinking about their roles as role models for first year students. They get to see that they can make a difference.
