What People Are Saying
"Universities are among the few places in society where a large part of our purpose is to foster ideas and innovation, to dream and to inspire hope. Universities are also a place for applying fast-changing knowledge and learning in ways that improve people’s lives. I call it “knowledge in action.”"
