Course, Degree and Certification Program
Declaration and Application Procedures
We often most appropriately know ourselves
and best relate to the world by the role we are attracted to
playing at a given time or place. For example, people relate
to us differently and we feel and act differently when we are
in "uniform" than when "off duty," when playing
at a beach rather than visiting a library, as parent or teacher
rather than engaged in a swimming race. This phenomenon also
affects what we gain from and give to a situation or relationship.
When we make and express a
commitment to something we are attracted to, we often do better
in fulfilling that attraction or goal because we are conscious
of our focus and intention; in turn, others are aware of and
attracted to respect and support us. For this reason, people
who are attracted to participating in an IGE course, degree or
certification program are asked to make a declaration
of their intentions by submitting a program application. They
are accordingly treated and rewarded by receiving the Orientation
Course and its books at no cost, as part of their application.
This helps students and faculty produce more supportive relationships
and a greater degree of excellence on the course.
For these reasons, as of October
