I have been lucky enough to have learned a lot of things from a lot of people.  Of course today I am an assistant professor of politics at the University of Virginia’s College at Wise, but there are other schools I’d like to draw your attention to, if you wouldn’t mind, notably: 

Emory & Henry College: My baccalaureate institution - prepared me for a life of reading and writing till my eyes hurt and my fingers hurt, well, more. Triple majored in political science, art, and geography. 

The University of Virginia in Charlottesville: My masters institution, I read for East Asian studies, focusing on Chinese politics, history, philosophy, and art.  

The University of Tennessee in Knoxville: My doctoral institution, I read for political science, testing in the fields of international relations and comparative politics and specializing in the origins of conflict. 

I also owe debts to some other great schools, notably Beloit College, where I attended intensive language training for Mandarin Chinese, and Maryville College, where I was an adjunct professor for several years and learned the differences between teaching at a research institution and teaching at a liberal arts institution.
