  • Dream Big, little one
  • Open your eyes
  • Think, read, sift, and weigh
  • Let learning bring light
  • Into a wondrous new world
  • And keep your destiny on track!

They tell us it all starts with education. It will open doors and give us access to the top jobs and to the corridors of power. It would make us equal; Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, and others, would get a fair shot, a slice of the pie.

What the streets can’t fix the classrooms will address and from there will arise America’s future leaders. They told us these things and more.

Dear Colleagues,

UPDATE ON TOWN HALL MEETING

As you might recall, I convened a Town Hall meeting on June 17, three days after I joined our university community. Allow me to thank those of you who attended for being there and for sharing your concerns and suggestions, and for doing so with passion and commendable candor and respect.
