- About SCAD
"Witnessing those moments when students are struck by a sudden ability within themselves to glimpse into the complexities of life in a way that provides them with some new understanding. Such moments can be earth-shaking, but they can also be modest - small epiphanies that help them make sense of their curiosities, their motivations, their surroundings and their future. And the professor's role might be more geared toward the cultivation of a relatively consistent rhythm of the modest moments, with the hope that the doors to the larger ones are nudged wider and wider."
