Making an Impact

Oles steeped in the liberal arts bring immense value to their communities and to their workplaces — a wider perspective and nimbleness of mind that sparks creativity and informs complex problem solving. They have the ability to develop bold new ideas and the capacity to work collaboratively with people who are different from themselves. They are compassionate, engaged, and thoughtful citizens of the world. Five Oles — Branden Moriarity ’07, Apoorva Pasricha ’14, Mark Jansen ’90, Novia Josiah-Isaac ’12, and Elizabeth Decker Turner ’06 — speak to the depth and breadth of an interdisciplinary St. Olaf education.
