One couple that continues to inspire on this front is Eric ’93 and Angela Dexter ’92, parents ’21. “We are big believers in the impact of education, and our time at IC was life-changing for us,” they share.
Angela, in particular, was the first in her family to attend college and was only able to go to IC because of the financial aid she received. Being welcomed into IC’s inclusive community changed the trajectory of her life completely and also brought her and Eric together.
As alumni of the School of Humanities and Sciences, Eric and Angela are strong believers in the value of a liberal arts education. Eric’s successful career in finance may at first glance appear to have little to do with his liberal arts degree, but to Eric, many of the skills he honed, and subjects he studied, while in the School of Humanities and Sciences—including behavioral finance, psychology, and communication and presentation skills—have been significant contributors to his career.
