Professor Stultz really fostered a creative environment which was extremely necessary for this course. He enabled a high degree of autonomy that resulted in enhanced creativity and execution.

Dr. L is just the best! His enthusiasm for the curriculum and its subject matter, his experiences, expertise and keen understanding of creative strategy, and the unwavering encouragement, support and kindness that he brings to each and every student makes all of the difference.

What helped me the most was simply feeling comfortable being able to reach out to Dr. Stultz and knowing I’d receive a timely response. I often times tend to over analyze assignments and portions of lessons, so I’d email him for clarity or advice. He would always reply within hours with an encouraging response.
