Your course is really powerful and impressive, but what is more important for me is your passionate personality. You are a great example of what a real Teacher should be - open-minded, sincere, charismatic, experienced and warm-hearted. I have began to look at the world from another perspective. Thank you very much! -A.D. CSC 2017
"As long as societies distribute needs and power unequally between populations, it is unethical for communications and human service professionals to help solve minor and/or immediate problems while ignoring the systemic barriers created by societies that permit or perpetuate inequalities among citizens. Real change is not possible unless we deal with the crucial problem in human societies: lack of economic and social power among individuals at the grassroots"
- Melkote, 2000, p.46
