“‘To list is to exclude’ and determining exhibition participants from among the College of Education faculty proved quite difficult since so many professors in Wardlaw Hall are engaged in the struggle for social justice and actively involved in civil rights, diversity, and multicultural projects. Ultimately, we invited faculty who were working with undergraduates since the Museum’s focus is generally oriented toward these students. We thank those faculty who were able to participate, and we understand the hectic schedule of many of our colleagues who wished to take part but were unable.” Craig Kridel, Curator
