 What is the mission of SAIL?

SAIL participants are here for the sheer joy of learning something new and becoming more informed. The SAIL community includes talented instructors, college professors, and business leaders with categorical expertise in a myriad of subject areas. Students learn from each other, hear and consider opposing ideas, integrate the expertise of the instructor, and ultimately synthesize new knowledge, opinions, and views.
