The Finance Classroom: September 11 and Beyond (Roundtable Discussion)
6 Pages Posted: 11 Oct 2001
Date Written: September/October 2001
The events of September 11 provided an extraordinary teaching experience for schools and educators. Schools cancelled classes, organized prayer services, made grief counselors available, heightened security, organized ways for members of the community to help, assisted alumni to establish roll-calls to check for the missing, and encouraged tolerance. For those of us in the classroom, the response was somewhat more intimate. Many students looked to faculty in new ways - not simply as experts who helped them learn Finance, but also as sources of direction in troubled times. We asked the members of the Advisory Board about their teaching experiences in this time and how they and their schools reacted to the events. We are grateful to those educators who choose to share their reflections with us and we hope you find them interesting. If you would like to share your thoughts, please send them in an email to Roundtable@SSRN.Com, let us know whether you want to be identified by name. We will post the follow up as an addendum to this feature.
