Dozens of faculty, alumni, staff, and local friends of Fielding gathered at the McCune house on Oct. 30 to celebrate the launch of A Passion for Adult Learning, the new book by longtime faculty member Keith Melville.
Not only does the book trace Fielding’s evolution from its founding generation through the four decades that followed, but it’s the first official publication of the Fielding University Press.
Dr. Melville signed copies of the book and spoke of our founders as pioneers who turned graduate education on its end by aiming it at adult learners, making it accessible from a distance, and still ensuring that it’s high quality.
Now, of course, our model is emulated by so many institutions, as students demand its flexibility of delivery and integrity of content.
