Albertson College Professors Reach Out to Community

2004. 12. 02.

CALDWELL (Idaho)- Albertson College political economy professors Dr. Robert Dayley and Dr. Jim Angresano are reaching out to the adult learners of the Treasure Valley.

The two professors have spent the last several weeks teaching a special class for the Renaissance Institute, an organization of adult learners.

The course, entitled Ideas, Ideals, and Conflict in the Middle East, focuses on current events in the Middle East in the context of contemporary international relations theory. Students explored the evolution of liberalism, realism, and neo-conservatism and how ideas and ideals shape policies and actual events in the Middle East.

Renaissance Institute is an organization for adult learners sponsored by Boise State. The organization serves intellectually curious adults throughout the valley and features short non-credit collegiate level classes and a lecture series.

Albertson College of Idaho is the state's oldest and longest continuously accredited private, residential liberal arts and sciences institution. With an average class size of 15, students receive personal attention from faculty members dedicated to teaching. CofI was recently named a "Best Value" by the Princeton Review and was ranked 11 in the nation by the same publication for Professors Bring Material to Life.
