The goal became more important than pleasing their superiors, upholding departmental policy, or appeasing potentially hostile interest groups (O’Leary, 2014). Each of the four Guerillas felt as though this was a very important goal “because it was the right thing to do”.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
