Although his Bachelor's degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and Master's degree from the University of Connecticut are in English Literature, Kevin serves as Husson's Executive Director of Information Resources and Library Services. And while he spends much of his time working with servers, mice and cabling, instead of Hemingway, Coleridge and Emerson, he visits them when he can. Kevin is also a Registered Maine Guide, and has had the pleasure of teaching Fly Fishing at the University, as well as a number of English and Computer Information Systems courses over the last ten years.
"Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?" -- T.S. Eliot
Throughout history, men and women have made enormous sacrifices and have risked even death for the chance to access the kinds of information that might lead to wisdom. The "Information Revolution" has made more of this raw information available to more people than ever before, but often, that which exists in abundance is not held in great value. It is the role of today's educator -- not just to provide information -- but to help students and ultimately society develop meaning and value for this information, to define and create a path to wisdom.
