Relationships with other schools

Matthew McConaughey’s film school class at the University of Texas has gotten lots of popularity, especially considering who he is in Hollywood and on UT-Austin’s campus.

However, many celebrities stay connected to college by teaching classes and symposiums. These include Spike Lee, James Franco, Oprah, Alec Baldwin, Kal Penn and even Kanye West (his mother was a professor after all).

I am all about staying connected to higher ededucation, especially if you went to that school. That is one of the ultimate ways to give back and enrich a new generation of students.

These students will come for the celebrity but will reap much greater benefits.

Personally I would have loved to have taken class from Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Michelle Obama or Cornell West. I like learning from the best in the field and ones with lots of life experiences.

Let’s all continue to teach and reach each other!
