PROFESSOR WEB SITES/SYLLABI ONLINE: Would you allow the Presidential Scholars Think Tank to post a link to your Web site? The Presidential Scholars Think Tank has designed a site to be a central hub for students to access professors' Web sites/syllabi. This provides students the opportunity to research a professor and his or her teaching style. Students would be able to match learning style with teaching style. It is an objective site, not like "Pick-a-Prof." If you have any questions or would allow a link to your Web site contact Matt Jaeger at mjaeger@uni.edu. Visit http://www.geocities.com/pantherclasses
