Course Instruction Team 

"My learning journey at Quail Springs helped to nurture my presence of mind
to be a better and more active listener and designer - a vital trait for the
international development professional. The coursework was incredibly
pertinent to my work in Uganda and without a doubt made me more aware, more
compassionate, and more focused in my role as a 

project manager and human being."
