It may be hard to believe, but most faculty members once shared many of the same needs and concerns as today's undergraduate students. Foremost of those needs was to get a job and pay back our debts. However, after many years in the classroom many of us may have begun to realize that the important point of what an education was all about was missed. Instead of solely asking how and when will we be employed, the question that should have been asked was "What educational knowledge, values, and skills should we really have after all this time, effort, and money?" Or to put the question in a contemporary context, "What constitutes a complete education in general and how specifically does that relate to aviation?"
