Lensmire, Timothy J.
Educational Foundations, v17 n3 p69-76 Sum 2003
In this article, the author recounts his experiences at Michigan State University during his graduate studies and at Washington University in St. Louis, when he worked as an assistant professor. He focuses his narrative on his struggle to define his quest, to avoid both success and failure. The author was born in a small town in rural Wisconsin and went to Michigan State University for graduate school. When he was at graduate school, he learned the most important lessons of his life from his friends, who were the agency, the cause, of his most profound learning about the world and his self. He also learned that spiritual nourishment came from philosophers and artists; that ways of being with others were preferable to how people treated each other in the academy; and that success meant many things in the society and school system.
