"In general, the more contact students have with their teachers the better. Working with a professor on a research project or serving with faculty members on a college committee or community organization lets students see first-hand how experts identity and solve practical problems. Through such interactions teachers become role models, mentors and guide for continuous, lifelong learning." - Kuh, et al. 2010
