Professor Frazier challenges students to get involved in community and global issues as part of his changemaking in the classroom. His recent article, "Creating a Generation of Humanitarian Art Activists (Artivists)", explores how a collegiate education can empower students to change the world. To date Frazier's college students have raised more than $150,000 for social causes, donated more than 30,000 community service hours, and positively impacted the lives of more than 250,000 global citizens. For all of his efforts, Professor Frazier has been honored with two Lifetime President's Volunteer Service Awards from U.S. President Obama.

Note: This list is not designed as the 25 best or most important film directors of all-time, which would be a different list, but as 25 directors to teach students how film construction, genre, narrative and editing techniques work. At the end of every term students evaluate this list to determine who remains and who gets selected. Recent student selections are Miyazaki and Ridley Scott, and recent deletions are Ingmar Bergman and Andy Warhol.
This list them combines the four dominant ways that we can evaluate film objectively:
Greatest accomplishments in film history -Aesthetics of film -Film's impact on society -Technological advances in film -Film as business (commercial success)
Note: This list is not a 100 Greatest Films of All-Time as created by AFI, American Film Institute. In fact, every semester my film classes evaluate which films to eliminate from the list and which films to add. Movies listed as 101-110 are the last 10 movies my film students eliminated as part of their final exam.
