2016 JBU Little Rock Center

Transcript

Elizabeth Pulley:
John Brown University in Little Rock, we've been around since 1919. Our focus is working adults wanting to go back to school.

Caleigh Moore:
I think I knew why I chose to come here after the first few classes.

Elizabeth Pulley:
We have professors that are currently in different key positions throughout the city, and they come in to teach a class for our students, and they have that hands on experience, but also have the knowledge of what's going on currently in the business world.

Danny Hinton:
One reason I love teaching Critical Analysis and Reasoning here at the JBU center is it gives students a real practical look at problem solving and critical thinking in normal business situations. So we're in week two right now of this class, and we're already into real life practical case studies of how we put together, piece together a reasonable strain of thinking to make great decisions and to lead well and to cast vision for those who are underneath us.

Caleigh Moore:
The professors sharing both their work experience and their faith with us- you don't hear that a lot. Especially in the work place, but you get it here in the classroom.

Dr. Bonnie Phillips:
When I was looking at the next stage of my career, because of my beliefs, I wanted to be in an institution that believed the Christian perspective, and being able to have that foundation was an integral part of learning and an integral part of the issues that people face all the time from a clinical perspective, so I think for me those two things coming together made John Brown very attractive.

Danny Hinton:
So one of the things that we see throughout the curriculum and I love about being a part of JBU is the integration of our Christian faith into everything that we do. And so a lot of times we talk about head knowledge, and we talk about being able to regurgitate information but with JBU it's about life transformation, it's about obtaining knowledge for sure, but it's about life transformation, it's ultimately about being able to do things and succeed with their God-given talents and abilities.

Dr. Bonnie Phillips:
It's non-traditional so people who maybe want to go back and get another degree, or they're at a time period in their life where they're making adjustments, this program is designed for the student to be able to come in at night and take classes and still be able to have families and work full-time.

Caleigh Moore:
This program has equipped me to define where I want to go using the tools that God has given me.

Elizabeth Pulley:
We've had several students that have- currently in the program or that have graduated- that really took leadership and understood leadership to the next level in their positions, and their employer started noticing.

Danny Hinton:
One of the things that I have loved is their commitment to excellence and every time that I've been a part of teaching a class or seen a new movement or development in the Little Rock center it's always done with excellence, and for someone like me who's balancing work and other things and family I always look forward to being involved in the next step of JBU because it's going to be done with excellence.
