In my previous blog, I addressed the concern that the United States is adrift without a science policy to secure our future, while China seems to be quickly adopting our successful research university model. But that isn’t the end of the story. The fact that the Chinese can innovate on existing ideas so well tells me that it is only a matter of (short) time before they begin to drive the creative process.
It behooves academia, government, and industry to quickly settle on a stable policy that will allow us to get back to the business we do best: educating the best engineers and scientists, and producing the seeds of innovation that drive the technological markets of the future.”
Believe and Achieve: A message to underrepresented minorities, women, and all of us who are different
To think that all is fine and that discrimination, bias, and bigotry are relics of the past is to live in a fantasy, or certainly a different world from the one I live in. Dr. Bras shares excerpts from a 1998 address at MIT titled "Believe and Achieve: Success is Earned, Not Given at MIT." Written nearly two decades ago, many of those words are still valid today.
Georgia Tech Provost Rafael L. Bras recently traveled to Italy to speak to faculty, students, and administrators of several Italian universities about innovation in education.
We are proud of a legacy of sustainability that now spans more than six decades, and we will strive to realize our mission of “progress and service” as thoughtful stewards of all of our resources.
