Our American partnership: The impact of land-grant universities in our 150th year
Dr. Duane Nellis | 2011 OSU Alumni Fellow | President, University of Idaho
4:00 p.m.
Linus Pauling Science Center - Reser Auditorium (not Reser Stadium)
An impassioned and bold pep talk about how landgrants' powerful mixture of a deep tradition of service, a strong commitment to transformative education and problem-solving research, and an eagerness to put practical solutions to work in peoples' lives is more important than ever in a world that discovers or generates seemingly intractable problems at a dizzying rate. Landgrants exist because the nation once looked toward the horizon and said, "We think the folks out there need more well-trained problem-solvers to help them thrive and lead great lives." I think we answer that call more eagerly and effectively today than we ever have.
