I left UD several years ago and am now in a doctoral program. When I get stumped, depressed, anxious, etc., Dr. B is who I call. He is always helpful and I wish he was on my doctoral committee. What a gem!

A year later, I still miss this class (Legal Issues) and love that "The Bish" sends out updates about legal issues on Facebook. Who else would do that?

It's a shame that he is retiring because UD is closing the higher ed programs. A real loss for grad students. Guys like this should be teaching forever. One of the best.

I took the course because of a friend's recommendation and I am so happy I did. I actually look forward to class because I know it will be interesting. A shame that this program is closing.

As advertised -- a great teacher and a better person. The reason to take grad courses in higher education at UD.

Simply as advertised -- one class I hated to miss. The day he had to cancel class was actually a bummer. You could not get a better introduction to graduate school.

A giant clue for 1st year students: Don't be late for class!!!! He is a stickler for being on time. Get there on time and you will enjoy his class (while working hard).

This is a tough course and Bishop is demanding, but it gets you up to par for graduate work. He will help you if you ask and really cares about students. His great sense of humor may not be obvious at first, but he is very witty.

I love Dr. B.!!!!! He has made the transition to graduate school so much easier for me. He tells you exactly what you need to know. He is THE reason to come to Delaware.

He takes his responsibilities toward students very seriously --I wish other profs would do likewise. He is always willing to help and be a strong mentor.

At first I was intimidated because he has such a great reputation in the profession and I was just a lowly first-semester grad student. He really is friendly, though, and never acts in a condescending way towards any student. He's a gem and I would love to take more courses from him.

He really provides a good introduction to graduate work -- demanding, but he really wants stsudents to do well. Put the work in and you'll be okay. A great guy, once you get to know him.

Bishop is what you want for a graduate mentor -- he knows the field and cares about his students. It is so neat to see your advisors name all over the professional literature. He publishes everywhere.

Course is very broad in content, so some stuff is more interesting than others. It is good to have the coordinator of the graduate program teach the introductory course. You know that what Bishop says is the way it is and other advisors are not as well informed.

Your individual supervisor is a key for this course, but Bishop organizes it all very well. His stories about beginning counselors are priceless.

I didn't like the class at first because the textbook is difficult, but Dr. Bishop has focused on the practical side of things and now class discussions are great.Still, it's tough to guess what will be on exams.
