You took the time and had the skills to clarify our resources, needs, and expectations, and you applied this knowledge to doing the job RIGHT."

"I was absolutely astounded at the amount of work Professor Steve Hoffman did for us...It made me really start to figure out what I can do to fix the environment.  I've been having a storm of ideas, been motivated to work to speak with experts about the environment as it relates to food science, and been motivated to change my habits.  I believe this to be a lasting change...I am very glad to have experienced this as learner."

--Student Evaluation of Instruction, Antioch College

If we thoroughly integrate multiple perspectives;
And if we persist in applying all that we know;
Together we arrive at excellent answers."
