Summer Breakaway - a study of Dr. Karen Gross' book Breakaway Learners
Eastern Kentucky University is full of students who are breaking away from something to create a brighter future for themselves, and Dr. Gill Hunter refuses to let them slip through the cracks.
“We aren’t faithful to our mission,” Hunter stressed, “if we don’t commit to educating every student we enroll.”
Every Wednesday morning this summer in the John Grant Crabbe Main Library, dedicated faculty meet to participate in a vital and innovative form of professional development. Led by Hunter, they are reading and discussing the book “Breakaway Learners: Strategies for Post-secondary Success with At-risk Students,” by bestselling author Dr. Karen Gross. They were able to take their learning a step further on July 11, when they hosted the author via a Zoom teleconference.
