The Great Courses 25th Anniversary
In 2015, The Great Courses celebrated its 25th anniversary. Our founder, Tom Rollins, joined in the celebrations and provided us with his thoughts and reflections on what we have accomplished in a quarter century.
From Our Founder
My vision was clear: If I could record lectures by the greatest professors in America - professors who were not just experts in their field but who were also passionate and truly gifted communicators - then anyone could enjoy learning from them, without the pressure of homework or exams.
And 25 years later, while times and technologies have changed, the DNA of The Great Courses has not. Great professors making great courses for anyone who values the sheer joy of learning. That is what makes me most proud today.
Finally, I can't let this occasion pass without taking the opportunity to personally thank you for making this milestone possible. In a world of decreasing attention spans and sound-bite media, you choose deep learning as a way of life. That's what will propel The Great Courses to its next 25 years and beyond.
Tom Rollins, Founder
