Taylorstuckert"After Butler, I moved to New York City to work for a large international law firm. I then became interested in economic development and joined the Peace Corps in Bolivia. My program in Bolivia was eventually evacuated due to political turmoil and I ended up back in Wilmington, OH, my hometown and where I currently live. Since being back in Wilmington, I started an economic development non-profit,Energize Clinton County, with a high school friend following the loss of our town's largest employer. Through this venture I've been fortunate enough to attend and speak at many national conferences, such as Pop!Tech and the Institute for the Future's 10 Year Forecast. I am still working with my organization and completing my M.A.  in Community Planning at the University of Cincinnati, School of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning."

"I chose to study Philosophy at Butler because I wanted to develop skills for critical thinking.  Studying Philosophy helped me to acquire the tools and knowledge to develop and articulate an understanding of the world around me. I can say that without a doubt my experience of studying Philosophy at Butler radically changed how I receive and respond to the world around me, and has greatly contributed to the post-graduate successes and experiences that I've had and will certainly contribute to my experiences to come."
