"I get a lot of requests for alumni donations, having three degrees from three different institutions: my undergrad school (Middlebury), the university where I got my masters degree (the American University of Beirut), and the university where I got my Ph.D. (Georgetown). I appreciate the education I received at all those places, but I feel deeply attached to Liggett, because it is where I grew up, where I had the closest friends, and because as a scholar looking back, I profoundly appreciate the quality of the University Liggett School faculty as well as their personal care and guidance through the rough times of adolescence. I feel privileged to be able to give back to University Liggett School and her traditions, and to contribute to her future." -- Dr. Karin Christina Ryding, '60 LIG

This was the title of the session Nick Provenzano presented at a conference in Iceland in early November. The University Liggett School Makerspace director spent six days exploring the country and culture, visiting schools and attending Uts, an annual education conference.
Since 2015,the social studies department has revitalized and localized the way history is taught at University Liggett School. Administrators and faculty were frustrated with the traditional approach to teaching history, which typically bounces around the country to famous places and events.The traditional approach to United States history usually ignores student passions, as well as connections between a students community and national trends over time.
University Liggett School is a private preschool and kindergarten through 12th grade college preparatory school in Metro Detroit that is nationally recognized for its innovative curriculum and arts and athletics offerings.
