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!
