Christie Scollon

Associate Professor of Psychology, School of Social Sciences

"SMU-X is nothing short of a quiet revolution in education. Students are given the license to do extraordinary things, and they certainly rise to the occasion when challenged.

SMU-X classes are intense and lot of work, but they are never boring. I hope my students finish the term exhausted and with an unforgettable and meaningful experience. SMU-X is not about information transfer (from prof to students), but instead it is about students embodying, experiencing, and applying knowledge first-hand."
