"There’s a debate that still goes on and is going on right now about what place E.S.L., if any, should have in higher education. I think that our students add a lot of diversity to the campus. I think that many of our community college students have not had the opportunity to travel. They have not had an experience of another culture, and that these students can teach us a lot about cross-cultural experience."
