“All of the courses I’ve attended, both in and out of the Army, have stressed the importance to think critically. This is the first time anyone has ever showed me how. As with all of the skills I’ve learned in the course so far, this information is immediate actionable in my personal and professional life.”

Dr. Mark Smith

“My academic and legal experience adds both scholarly and practical critical thinking experience over 40 years. That being said, The Critical Thinking Initiative’s (TCTI) overview, model, and exercises presented something not only new in its conception but in its practical application. Simple yet ultimately profound, my experience today with the TCTI application is like a complicated puzzle suddenly coming together.”
