Professors who care

A place to be yourself

At MIU, we care about you as a whole person. We create a nurturing environment where you can be your full self. Your professors are there not only to support your progress in their academic field but to support your growth as a person.

  • Small classes allow for individual attention
  • Lifelong friendships with both professors and fellow students are common at MIU
  • Active learning and small group projects mean you are learning both from your peers and your professors
  • Professors and students both practice the TM technique daily for a shared focus on personal development

Professor Nynke Passi, in her students’ words

Nynke Passi (on left)

“Whether she is teaching poetry, graphic narrative, or memoir writing, Nynke Passi is more than a teacher; she is a mentor, confidante, and muse. With compassion and care, she guides students in expressing their creativity through language—she inspires students to be bold, authentic, and honest.”
—Anna Maria Cornell, MIU alumnus

Nina Benjamin

“One special thing about Nynke is her ability to make you feel as though you are the only other person in the room when she is talking to you. When giving feedback, she immediately tunes in to your individual strengths and weaknesses and tells you exactly what you need to hear. We had a visitor in class the other day who graduated from another university. After a brief discussion on the previous night’s homework, he turned to me and said, ‘I just learned more in the last 15 minutes than I learned throughout my entire college career! And that is the sweetest woman I’ve ever met!’”
—Nina Benjamin, MIU alumnus
