This article explored the learning experiences of the author’s educational connection perspective; specifically, it identified congruent themes and examined their connective value to individual, cultural, and societal change.  Past course work including Transformational Leadership, the Ethical Educator, Creativity, Inquiry, and Innovation, and Quantitative Research Methods all presented corresponding themes relating to methods of creating, comprehending, and cultivating change.  The ability to find connections within courses can offer value to possible needed change.  It is change which we live by and we need to process those experiences into positive momentum for growth.  Four specific themes—compassion, identity, relationships, and truth—present positive learning associations and can offer a connection to change for individuals or groups.
