Reason #2—May 26, 2014
Points of Pride

Zeynep Isik-Ercan, faculty

She wears it to represent a university that provides endless opportunities for its students, no matter their personal circumstances. As a professor of education, Ercan is familiar with the various types of students who become part of the program: the single mother of four; the returning adult dreaming of a new career path; the student who juggles two or three jobs with a full course load.

Ercan has seen students who, no matter what their circumstances, continuously strive for excellence. As a faculty member, she examines how learning in childhood guides development of teachers and how they respond to various educational challenges.

This is why Ercan proudly wears her Mastodon pin. She wears it with pride for a university that promises a great future to its students.
