Most employees perceive DEI as positive, yet there is a significant political divide. DEI investment is steady and projected to double by 2026. Investors and legislation are continuing to pressure organizations to prioritize DEI. Younger employees see DEI as non-negotiable.

    A big part of the history of skiing is the fellowship of ski clubs. And before you write it off as a thing of the past, meet the OurSundays Ski & Board Club. This started out to be a podcast on diversity, exploring OurSundays' affiliation with the National Brotherhood of Snowsports. But it quickly became a celebration of why we all love to ski and ride – a culture shared by all. Domeda Duncan and Mark Giles are two transplants to Utah. Domeda skied as a child in Detroit. The closest Mark came to the sport was on a jet ski in Florida. But as new Utahns, they both wanted to explore winter in the mountains on skis. After all, wasn't that what Utah was about?Ski Utah's Discover Winter program provided that opportunity.Born out of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020, Discover Winter is now in its third season. Ski Utah made a unique decision to focus its diversity program on adults. Domeda and Mark are prime examples of how it has worked. If you're a longtime skier or rider, chances are that as much as you love the sport, there are aspects that you take for granted. Hang out with the OurSundays gang, and they'll remind you that, at its core, skiing and snowboarding are about social engagement. It's the sizzle of the bacon alongside the buttermilk pancakes in the Brighton parking lot as the first rays of sun glint off Milly. Or it's karaoke after a joyous day on the slopes. As Domeda says, it brings out the best in all of us.The new OurSundays club is now a part of the National Brotherhood of Snowsports, a nationwide organization of Black ski clubs that recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. Formed by Hall of Famers Ben Finley and Art Clay, it blossomed over the years with its Black Summit, widely known as the most fun week in skiing. Domeda's own roots in the sport trace back to the Jim Dandy Ski Club, one of the founding programs of NBS.Industry leaders, like Ski Utah, have long grappled with how to make the sport more inviting for people of color. We could all learn a few things from OurSundays. Listen in to this Last Chair conversation with Mark Giles and Domeda Duncan. It's an enlightening look at why we all love the culture of skiing and snowboarding. And if you run into Domeda on the slopes, ask her for that buttermilk pancake recipe. Now settle in for this episode of Last Chair.

My services are designed to uplift community stories, especially communities of color. I offer tailored GIS solutions, visually appealing cartographic design, social media and marketing support, and storytelling guidance so that you can ensure your stories and experiences are authentically portrayed.As a Black woman in the GIS, forestry, environmental science, and environmental education fields/sectors, I experience firsthand the lack of acknowledgment and representation these fields have of Black and brown successes, accomplishments, and feats. That is why I strive to change the white-dominant narrative of how data should be used, why data should be used, and how to use data and GIS to share an accurate representation of people of color in the U.S.I take my clients through the full arc of mapping their story: story development, data collection and management, cartography and spatial analysis, graphic design and creation, and communications through Story Maps, infographic and report creation, or social media marketing. Data is only meaningful if a story is attached to it and we at Map Nerd Consulting believe there is a story in every map.This past year, I joined the 2023 Cohort of the NAAEE CEE-Change Fellows where I am partnering with NorthStar of GIS whose mission is to advance intersectional racial justice, equity, and belonging in GIS, geography, and STEM. Together, we are developing GIS curriculum and training materials specifically for and by Black people and the Black African diaspora to change the narrative on how Black people and communities are portrayed in the context of climate change. Map Nerd ConsultingView Map Nerd Consulting's LinktreeSchedule a call with Gloria at https://calendly.com/mapnerdMercator ProjectionGloria's Community Action Project with NAAEE CEE-Change Fellowship  ________________________Producer: Tania MarienMusic: So Far So Close by Jahzzar is licensed under a Attribution-ShareAlike License; SOLO ACOUSTIC GUITAR by Jason Shaw is licensed under a Attribution 3.0 United States License.View The Freelance Project Portfolio to learn more about Independent environmental education professionals and how they strengthen environmental literacy.Contact Us * Talaterra is an affiliate of Bookshop.org.

    The current debate over corporate Governance depicts a conflict between shareholders and stakeholders. But what if their interests were aligned?Alex Edmans is a professor at the London School of Business and an expert on the impact of ESG factors on firm performance. His latest book is called Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit. Alex and Greg discuss the pervading discourse on ESG factors and fiduciary duty. Alex compares the benefits and challenges of long-term versus short-term activism. Join us as we debunk the stereotypes of activist investing, asserting its potential to spark long-term value through a lens that values genuine insight over raw data. Greg and Alex also navigate beyond the surface of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion metrics, drawing a parallel with the flawed educational policy of No Child Left Behind. Alex also gives his personal reflections on the importance of research in real-world business applications and leveraging purpose statements for strategic decision-making both in business and life.*unSILOed Podcast is produced by University FM.*Episode Quotes:Why is it difficult to craft a statement of purpose for companies?36:03: So why is it difficult to come up with a mission statement, either for a company or for a person? To mean anything, it has to be selective. You can't be all things to all people, and that's why it's difficult to come up with such a statement because there's certain things that you miss out. So when I say to use rigorous research to influence the practice of business, that rules out just doing research for purely intellectual purposes, only to be published in top academic journals and be applauded by fellow academics. Instead, it's something where I'm doing this because I want to influence the way people think and act.Is shareholder capitalism bad for companies?11:42: Shareholder capitalism is actually not a bad thing as long as we correctly recognize that shareholder value is long-term shareholder value.Reforming companies by improving it for the long-term16:34:  Some of the most valuable companies today, such as the tech companies in the US, are worth far more than their quarterly earnings. Because investors are valuing the future, indeed, the most successful activist investors are the ones that will try to improve a company's productivity and innovation, and indeed there was some nice academic research which looks at the source of the value creation from activist shareholders, and it's not value extraction, value capture, it's indeed things such as improving productivity and improving innovation.Pursuing action, not profit08:46: So, one of the messages of the book [Grow The Pie] is actually the best way to pursue a goal. Let's say it's profits. It's not actually direct. If you go in with the mindset, and you're right to highlight the mindset, can I make money from this? There are many good things that do make money in the long term, but because that monetization is unexpected and difficult to predict, if you have the mindset of, I'm only going to do something if it makes me money, then I might not actually take that action.Show Links:Recommended Resources:Pareto principleM-PesaMichael PorterMilton FriedmanESG - Environmental, social, and corporate governanceDEI - Diversity, equity, and inclusionSASB - Sustainability Accounting Standards BoardNo Child Left Behind ActMcKinsey & CompanyBlackRockCSR - Corporate social responsibilityProject Last MileDoctors Without BordersBob IgerGuest Profile:AlexEdmans.comGrowThePie.netFaculty Profile from the London Business SchoolProfile on LinkedInSocial Profile on XWikipedia PageHis Work:Amazon Author PageGrow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and ProfitMay Contain Lies: How Stories, Statistics, and Studies Exploit Our Biases―And What We Can Do About ItGoogle Scholar Page

    In this episode, we delve into the remarkable journey of Yatin Mistry, a proud, gay, British Indian whose story of self-discovery and acceptance shines a light on the complexities of identity and the power of resilience. Growing Up in Essex: Yatin recounts his upbringing in 1980s Essex, where racism was pervasive and societal norms pressured him to conform to a whitewashed ideal. He internalised this racism, feeling ashamed of his own identity and striving to fit into a mold that didn't truly represent him. A Shift in Perspective: At age 14, Yatin's worldview shifted when he learned about colonialism and the atrocities committed against his ancestors. This sparked a journey of anger and introspection as he grappled with his dual identity as a British Indian. A Quest for Meaning: Yatin's comfortable life in London took a dramatic turn when he was confronted with the injustice of famine in Africa. Motivated to make a difference, he left his job and embarked on a journey to India to work with children in the slums. Discovering Dual Identity: In India, Yatin found himself immersed in the richness of his cultural heritage, challenging his preconceived notions of identity. He confronted internalised homophobia and came to accept his sexuality as a natural part of who he is. Navigating Family Dynamics: Yatin's journey to self-acceptance was not without its challenges, particularly within his family. Despite initial resistance, he found support and understanding from his brother, while facing more complicated reactions from his parents. Empowering Others: Today, Yatin is happily married and dedicated to helping others on their own journeys of self-discovery. He emphasises the importance of patience and understanding in allowing others to come to terms with identities that may challenge societal norms. Conclusion: Yatin's story serves as a beacon of hope and inspiration, reminding us that embracing our true selves not only liberates us but also empowers others to do the same. As he aptly puts it, "when you let your light shine, you give others permission to do the same." Resources:   Website: Social Media:

    There's a war waging in the sports media world. It all started when CBS wrote a check to Tony Romo, making the former Cowboys QB the highest-paid analyst in the NFL. That was the first battle in this proxy war that's now pitting some of sports media's biggest names against one another in the ultimate money-grab era. One of the first casualties in this dispute was journalism. Journalism no longer exists. The industry has collapsed financially. Newspapers have lost their clout. The entire profession is now just about chasing the bag. Once you eliminate values, greed and envy take control. That's what's driving the friendly fire at ESPN, with Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Clark taking aim at a defenseless Pat McAfee. And, of course, with Smith and Clark on the frontlines, this conflict was destined to split along racial lines. Jason outlines his thoughts on the dispute that he says places the “Show Me the Money” boys — Romo, McAfee, Tom Brady, and company — against the "Diversity, Extortion and Income” crew led by Smith, Clark, Shannon Sharpe, and company. Jason argues that as long as these industry elites get paid, they are perfectly fine watching America burn. T.J. Moe joins the show and discusses how simple-minded our media figures have become.

    “Diversity is a treasure,” says President and Founder of Interfaith America Eboo Patel. But what does “diversity” really mean? The term is found these days in public discourse and political debate, in boardrooms and on athletic fields. But Eboo argues that the way it plays out in the United States often misses the point entirely: instead of honoring identity and leaving room for disagreement, we settle for a flattening of culture, calling it “diversity.” “Coherent doesn't mean univocal,” says Eboo. “In a democracy, you actually get to articulate your identity.” In this episode, Eboo describes why we should treasure our differences - especially religious differences - rather than treat them as insignificant, and provides new ways to frame polarizing issues around religion, race, and politics.

    Quick Take - (Full Episode - #81 - Link Below to Full Episode) Welcome Jake Cohen, a firefighter and real estate investor living in Colorado. Jake is an Airbnb Ambassador and an Airbnb Superhost for over five consecutive years. Much of our spirited conversation focuses on the first question that any investor should be asking - why am I doing this in the first place? Getting clarity on the goal helps Jake shape his short-term rental business in a manner that best suits his and his family's lives. Jake grew up in the hospitality business and is putting his years of experience to work as the founder of Step By Step BNB and the co-owner of Master Vacation Rentals, where he manages his own investments and helps clients run theirs at the top level possible. Jake's pathway to owning and managing multiple real estate investments started at a young age on the shores of Lake Tahoe, when his parents were house hacking a small bed and breakfast before that was even a branded term! After college, his family called upon him to run their second bed and breakfast in Palm Springs when the manager unexpectedly left. When Jake moved to Colorado, he saw an emerging real estate market with multiple investment opportunities. There, he partnered with his mom in an effort to better set up her retirement income. That endeavor has taken off, and they now have five investment properties in Steamboat Springs and in Gulf Shores, Alabama. In this episode, we discussed: - Jason and Jake meeting at the STR Wealth Retreat in Miami - How Jake first started in real estate helping his parents house-hack (before that was even a branded term) - Jake's journey from San Diego to Lake Tahoe to Palm Springs to Colorado - Having support from family members to have the right mindset for getting involved in real estate investing - The benefits of being able to use your own STRs for your family vacations - Choosing markets and having short term rentals in different parts of the country - Deciding to take on co-hosting clients - How life has changed since leaving his W-2 job - Creating a stable retirement income for Jake's mom through short-term rentals :: Link to Full Episode - https://youtu.be/-KGDMwapJx0 Where you can find Jake: Website - https://www.stepbystepbnb.com/ Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/stepbystepbnb/ Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/jakelcohen LinkedIn - https://www.linkedin.com/in/thejakeofalltrades/ Bigger Pockets - https://www.biggerpockets.com/users/jakec38 Jake's Airbnb listings - https://www.airbnb.com/users/129439075/listings Join Jason Muth from Straightforward Short-Term Rentals and Attorney / Broker Rory Gill of NextHome Titletown and UrbanVillage Legal in Boston, Massachusetts for another episode of The Real Estate Law Podcast! #realestatepodcast #nexthome #humansoverhouses #realestate #realestatelaw #realestateinvesting #realestateinvestor #realestateagent #airbnb #airbnbmanagement #strsecrets #vrbo #steamboatsprings #gulfshores #runninganairbnb #airbnbcohosting #financialfreedom #airbnbsuperhost #airbnbsecrets Follow us!

    Embracing change and adaptability has been a focal point in the latest episode of 'Student Affairs Voices From the Field.' Host Dr. Jill Creighton sits down with Dr. Denny Roberts, who has beautifully woven his international experiences into the fabric of student affairs. In this blog, I delve into the highlights of their conversation and explore how Dr. Roberts' insights can inspire and guide student affairs professionals in their practice. Understanding Diversity Beyond Borders One compelling topic from the episode was the discussion around diversity in Qatar versus the U.S. Dr. Roberts and Dr. Creighton highlight that when working internationally, one must redefine what diversity, equity, and inclusion mean within the context of their environment. Dr. Roberts emphasizes the importance of cultural understanding in fostering engagement in highly diverse student populations. This urges professionals to prioritize intentional efforts and practice humility to make substantial connections across varied cultural landscapes. Fostering Multicultural Engagement The challenges that Dr. Roberts faced in Qatar's Education City showcase the complexity of creating universal student experiences without imposing one's cultural norms and expectations. He underscores the necessity of professional development and immersion to truly engage with the local culture. The emphasis is on the importance of educators obtaining a deep understanding of the cultures they serve, which is crucial in respecting the choices and experiences of international students. Transitions, Writing, and Contributions Dr. Roberts' journey through various career and geographic transitions sheds light on his decision to step into consultancy. This choice was driven by a desire to maintain personal freedom and a passion for writing—something he has continued with zeal post-retirement. His contributions in philosophy, history, leadership, and internationalization highlight the valuable interplay between practice experience and scholarly activity in student affairs. Multipotentiality and Identity An intriguing element of Dr. Roberts' narrative is the idea of being a 'multipotentialite.' He describes the traits—idea synthesis, rapid learning, and adaptability—which mirror his approach to student affairs and consultancy. This concept adds another dimension to understanding professional identities within the field and encourages embracing one's diverse skill set. Reverse Culture Shock and Moving Forward Dr. Roberts' return to America after living abroad opened a discussion on reverse culture shock. His advice for professionals seeking international experience is thoughtful and grounded in choosing deep, reflective opportunities over perfunctory resume enhancements. His message: be transformed by your experiences and seek an environment that respects and enhances your growth. Conclusion Dr. Denny Roberts' experiences and insights provide a compelling narrative for those in student affairs. They encourage educators to be adaptable, culturally sensitive, and intentional—a lesson in how one's experiences can shape not just personal growth, but also professional practice in diverse environments. Ultimately, his journey teaches us that transitions can be an avenue for development, inspiring new approaches to leadership and inclusion in the field of student affairs.

Dr. Denny Roberts [00:00:25]: Delighted to be with you today, Jill. This is awesome. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:00:27]: It is such a thrill to be able to speak to you in our theme of transitions this season. You have had quite a few career transitions, both in your identity as a professional, but also in your physical location. And in our preshow chat, I also got to know you and I share a lot of transitions in common, so I'm excited to dig into those. But I always like to get started with a question of how you got to your current seat, and your current seat is consultancy, which I know a lot of student affairs professionals kind of weave in and out of or move through after a VPSA position. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:01:01]: It is kind of an interesting transition because I had done Consulting before, you know, when I was full time employed and that kind of thing. And when I decided that it was time to return to the US from Being located in Qatar, I kinda struggled. Do I wanna continue to work full time and therefore take another job at the US or do I want to do something else? And a variety of circumstances, both personal and professional, caused me to think, you know, I really am kinda tired of going to the office every day and having somebody else tell me to do is. So I thought, maybe I can make this consulting thing work. And I also had just a gob of Ideas in my head. And I've written, you know, quite a bit during my career, but there was just this whole backlog of ideas That came to me from working abroad, and I thought, you know, if I'm tied to go to the office every day, I'm not gonna get these things Done. And what's really been fabulous is my writing has actually accelerated in retirement. I don't know if that will continue or not, but it's been terrific. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:02:04]: And I've had so much fun writing with younger colleagues who have fresh eyes, with international colleagues To have a totally different perspective. And the character of my writing has really, I think, Changed in this post kind of and I like to call it semi retirement because I can't give up. Right? So I really have not adopted an identity of being retired. I'm still very actively involved, so it was a real decision, personal and professional, that I just wanted more freedom. And fortunately enough, I was very blessed with having had a career that gave me enough economic needs to say that I didn't need that monthly salary. And that's a tough decision To make 2 in terms of how much is enough. Anybody that is facing the potential of retirement, you have to kind of gauge, like, what what's What's the lifestyle I wanna have? And I decided that what we had was very much something that would allow us stability, allow us time to do what we want. My wife was retired at that point already as well, and we decided to move to Chicago to be close to our grandkids. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:03:08]: So, that was all a part of the scenario about How I got to the, current semi retirement status that I'm in. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:03:16]: You've been quite a prolific author and student affairs is with over 60 journal articles and peer reviewed journals. I believe you've either edited or, coedited. Is it 6 books as well? Dr. Denny Roberts [00:03:27]: That's correct. Yeah. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:03:28]: So with all of that, how has your voice as an author evolved from your very first publication through when you kind of felt like you were churning a burden and now? Dr. Denny Roberts [00:03:37]: When I first Started writing, and I was extremely fortunate to have matured in 2 settings that were very, very influential for me. One was Colorado State University, and the other was University of Maryland. Both of them and I was a 1st generation college student, so I was kind of clueless about what the academic world really was all about But I had some really good coaches in the early days who urged me. They said, If you wanna be in student affairs, you need to also contribute Intellectually, you can't just be a practitioner. So I had role models at both institutions that urged me to start writing. And the early pieces that I did, I mean, one was I got involved in the whole issue about the age change for alcohol On college campuses, and so 18 to 21? Correct. Yeah. And I stood in opposition to that, Which was kind of an unusual position to take at the time. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:04:34]: And so that was kind of an opportunist publication, but not one that is deep in my heart. So After that, I started working more to just write about things that I really cared about, and that I felt like I had really learned something, And then I had something to offer, which is really very different than what a faculty member experiences. And even though I've Taught both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. I was never driven by tenure and promotion to write certain sorts of things That get into the literature in a specific sort of way. So I were really informed by my practice Experiences throughout my life. So, you know, if I was struggling with a particular issue at a certain time, then I tended to use writing as kind of almost my public Journal, this is what I'm thinking. And I don't know frankly, when you write, you never know who's gonna Be touched by an article that you write, and it's kind of a mystery to me in terms of who does read things that I write. But I Have had feedback from some of my articles or chapters that my narrative style speaking from personal experience, That reflection has been helpful for other people, and I think that is a different kind of writing than sometimes you would see in a typical kind of Tenure track publication driven, you know, kind of an environment. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:05:54]: So my publications for the early start was kinda just but then it became much more purposeful and more deeply reflective as I've gone on. And the areas I've published in that I'm most proud of are kind of student affairs, Philosophy and history, leadership, and then internationalization. Those are the 3 areas that I've most enjoyed, and I hope that the contribution I've made there has Made some difference to shed some light on those topics. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:06:20]: Am I hearing you as maybe an early adopter of autoethnography as a research style? Dr. Denny Roberts [00:06:25]: Probably. And I wasn't even aware That as a style. I had no idea that that's what I was doing, but yeah, that really is kind of where I'm coming from. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:06:33]: I think my qualitative professor might be mad that I just called it a would want me instead to call it a methodology. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:06:40]: Yeah, exactly. Yep. Yep. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:06:41]: Well, Denny, you also have had a prolific as a campus based professional and then transitioned off of a campus. So why don't we talk about that? You were at University of Miami. Is that Miami, Florida or Miami of Ohio? Dr. Denny Roberts [00:06:54]: No. It's Miami University of Ohio. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:06:56]: I apologize to the state of Ohio. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:06:58]: You have to flip The words there. So yeah. But Miami University in Ohio is where I was. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:07:02]: And you had, what I understand to be a fairly traditional rise in student affairs going from junior roles to mid roles and finally to that VPSA role. What was the state of the field when you determined it was time to go overseas? Dr. Denny Roberts [00:07:14]: Well, the idea of going overseas Cheese was really kind of planted through a previous experience at Miami, and the Miami, and you'll be very interested in this as a person interested To the study abroad, they have a bubble program in Difertaj, Luxembourg. And I heard about their invitation for visiting scholars, which were typically Play usually faculty that would do those roles. Well, I applied for it even though I was an administrator and I got it. And so I got to spend a semester in Luxembourg, and then during that time I taught and mentored students, and then I also wrote Actually, one of my books, which is deeper learning and leadership, which came out in 2007. So I worked very, very hard every week, And I had a Eurail pass, and so if I met my writing objectives, then on Friday morning, I hit Eurail. And I would go someplace. Well, guess how many writing deadlines I missed? Dr. Jill Creighton [00:08:10]: All of them? None of them. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:08:13]: 0. I missed none of them. So every weekend I went someplace you know so I'd go to paris I'd go to berlin I'd go to fiena I would We'd go all over Europe on my Eurail pass because it didn't cost me a thing. And every place I would go, I would land, and I'd find a cheap place to stay, and I would start walking the city. You know, that's what I would do every weekend. And so that just exploded my idea about what it's like To be in other cultures and to learn from other places and to be respectful and attentive to the differences from myself as an American versus all the other worlds. And that happened in 2005. And then I just kind of ruminated for a while about, well, what was that all about? And Finished the book, got it published, all that kind of thing. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:08:59]: And then Qatar came to me just out of the blue, and I had not applied, but they came to me and invited me to apply For what was a newly created possession, which was the role was to coordinate student services and development activities across the 8 branch Universities that they had then attracted to, the Education City campus in Doha, Qatar. And simultaneous to this, which is just A very, very strange, fortuitous sort of thing is that my daughter, Darby, was graduating from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, And they invited her to go to their Carnegie Mellon branch program in Qatar. So Darby accepted the position first. They came to me subsequently. My immediate reaction when I was invited was I asked Darby. I said, Darby, this is crazy. I mean, your father's gonna follow you halfway around the world in your 1st job. I mean, Can you deal with this? Would this be okay? And she said, oh, of course, dad. Dr. Denny Roberts [00:10:00]: No problem at all. So I applied and they hired me and then I went over and that was in the fall of two And I went over for what was supposed to have been a 3 year contract, which was then successively extended to 6, And then extended to 7. And then finally, after 7th year, I said, I really need to go back, and I need to be with my family. Unfortunately, my My wife was not able to go over and live with me over there even though she came over on a quarterly basis, and we talked every day. But that's one of the challenges of expat work Yes. That always get to take your family with you, and that's not always convenient. And so you have to kinda figure out how that's gonna work. So that was a huge transition Culturally, professionally, personally, I mean that was the real kind of just crazy paradigm change for me when I went to Qatar. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:10:52]: So I grew up in the Middle East a little bit. I had my earliest years in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and it's a very different cultural space. I also have spent some time in the UAE and then have good colleagues in the Levant region, as well as, you know, just kind of all around the GCC or the Gulf Coast region. On the show last season, we had a good colleague from Kuwait and then also in the season prior, colleagues from Qatar as well and from Kuwait. And we hear that the the needs of students are just extremely different. For those who are not familiar with Education City. As Denny mentioned, there are more than 8 now branch campuses in Education City in Qatar. I believe it's more than 8 now. Dr. Jill Creighton [00:11:32]: And they have attracted or kind of what I would call joint venture opportunities, really, where students from the local region are coming in earning degrees with university names that a US audience are probably a little more familiar with. But it's not as if you can just transplant all of these Americanized ideals into this environment where the value system is extremely different. So how did you adapt what you knew and what
