"My experience in the CIIS Transformative Studies doctoral program has been one of the highlights of nearly 30 years in higher education administration by providing me an opportunity to pursue scholarly inquiry into a topic of passionate interest through a flexible combining of on-line learning and in-person residency."

A new way of thinking is necessary if we want to effectively address the world's great challenges. We must be able to think beyond siloed disciplines without forfeiting scholarly rigor. The PhD in Transformative Studies prepared me to be an innovative theorist and a transformative nursing leader dedicated to the goal of redesigning health care. The transdiciplinary approach at CIIS also provided me excellent preparation for my unique roles in academe.
