HGSE Across Generations

In our 100 years, faculty, students, and alums have developed relationships across generations that have stood the test of time. During Centennial, HGSE celebrated those important friendships that have offered mentoring and opportunities for the exchange of intergenerational knowledge — even long after leaving Appian Way. The following series, “CrossGen,” features education conversations highlighting how some of these important relationships were forged and have made a lasting impact on the field.
