Dr. Pauoine has lived in Connecticut all his life since his family settled here in the early 1920s.

Dr. Paulone believes every student has something to offer and something to learn, and he treats students with dignity and respect because he wishes to be treated the same way. He finds our education system has treated students as inferiors opposed to customers, and believes we need to be student focused because the education environment is not the environment of the middle ages where craftspeople handed down the total acquired knowledge of their field to neophytes. The students we now encounter are non-traditional students who have experience, desire to learn and practical knowledge in their subject area. The current state of education is to help our students attain, at minimum, tools to succeed in a particular field and hopefully the basis to establish fundamentals to be life-time learners.
Professors have to adhere to academic standards to maintain the integrity of the institution and to give students their money's worth in an education. They must mix practical application of the material, academic standards, active learning exercises, collaborative learning environments and areas where students can be teachers as well as learners to meet the above stated goals. Dr. Paulone believes his role in all this is to be facilitator, mentor, subject matter expert and enabler of a collaborative and fun learning environment.
