    There’s an editorial correction required for the article on Dan Bunch. Dan Bunch held a very significant position at Boston College. Specifically Dan was the Director of the Learning to Learn Program NOT Living to Learn Project. The work of the program and that of Dan left a permanent impact on everyone that transitioned through the program and had the fortunate opportunity to work with Dan. What was actually stated in the article completely undermines the overarching impact the program has made.
