John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education

Your Input Needed

We at the Gardner Institute (meaning Carol and Rob) thought it might be a fun, Friday diversion to compile a list of movies that have a higher-ed theme or component to them.  After exhaustive research (at the water cooler) we have assembled our list and now reach out to you, our colleagues, to contribute your findings. 

This is what we have so far…

Some of Our Favorite Movies with a Higher-Education Component

Toy Story 3 (*sniff*)
Good Will Hunting (a STEM theme as well)
It’s a Wonderful Life (everyone in Bedford Falls gets a college education except George Bailey)
The Nutty Professor (the original w/Jerry Lewis)
The Graduate (there is still a great future in plastics…if they are compostable)
Legally Blond (no stereotypes in this one)
Animal House (today’s version might substitute snuggies for togas)
Revenge of the Nerds (the greatest movie ever made…with Ted McGinley)

 We look forward to receiving your additives!
