FROM THE VC'S DESK

Great Universities strive to change the world for the better, they train for future jobs, they are productive and not just consumptive. The challenge before us is to open up to new ideas, get out of our self imposed cocoons and constructively engage the rest of the world‎. That is wisdom.
