iKnow initiative supports participatory learning

Freed-Hardeman University is a private Christian university in Tennessee. With fewer than 2,000 students and a student-to-faculty ratio of 14 to 1, the school is known for cultivating a personal experience in which students are more than just faces in the crowd.
