The life of a scholar is a constant quest for knowledge, understanding, context, solutions and answers that continue to elude even the greatest minds.
The best universities nurture this culture where scholars can pursue their noble quests, grounded in passion, purpose and pragmatism. The gains from the search for creative solutions to complex problems are not limited only to those directly engaged in this pursuit, but also to society at large. We all can learn and benefit from the deeper understanding that is a by-product of this process, and from the very real solutions that emerge from it.
