It's Like You're on a Ladder

Professor Emeritus of Biology Glen Dappen remembers the day he learned an anonymous donor had established an endowed scholarship in his name. “I was dumbfounded and speechless,” he said.

“I realized in that moment that my life as a teacher had reached students in a meaningful way, and now they’ve gone on to do bigger things.” He described his 47 years at NWU this way. “It’s like you’re on a ladder. You’ve got your hand out and you’re pulling students up, but if you also push them, then they can climb even higher.”
