Why History?

“I am always surprised by Morris students. They are, as a group, invariably smart, curious, engaged and typically very challenging, quite unlike students I've encountered elsewhere. But what I like best is that our students seem to comprise a moral community. Morris students watch out for each other and treat learning as a social endeavor. ”

—Stephen Gross, associate professor of history
