At the conclusion of her Foundations courses, Dana Basinger sends a letter to the parents of her students, accompanied by a class photograph and student essay.  In the letter to parents, Dana says, "Rest assured that we take seriously our charge to nurture persons, and that we count it a privilege to help shape your children into the mature adults that you have always hoped for."   


The world is better because of Dana Basinger and the dedicated employees of Samford University.
