"The syllabus is a small place to start bringing students and faculty members
back together.... If students could be persuaded that we are really interested
in their understanding the materials we offer, that we support their efforts to
master it, and that we take their intellectual struggles seriously, they might
respond by becoming involved in our courses, by trying to live up to our expectations,
and by appreciating our concern." Rubin, "Professors, Students, and
the Syllabus," Chronicle
of Higher Education
