Robert Jordan

Robert Jordan

Dean of 2nd/3rd Year Program

As the instructor for 2nd year students, my intention is to explicitly teach three important skills. First, to introduce a framework for setting goals. Secondly, introduce proven techniques that will help each person learn how to improve time management skills. Thirdly, encourage each individual to examine and improve personal life skills development. God does indeed have a plan for each student, and these three skills facilitate a healthy relationship with others, as well as to experience what God has for each in the work/educational world that they will eventually embark upon.
``God has a plan for each of our lives.`` Jeremiah 29:11
