Absolutely the most influencial professor in my life, and by far one of the kindest human beings I ever met! I think about Dr. Calvin often and hope to give others the same generosity and love he shared.

Jim Calvin was a vital part of the graduate Counseling program during my tenure with the European Division. He was well liked and respected by both students and colleagues. His was a life well-lived.
