QUOTABLES:

“These institutions – public or private, large or small, irrespective of location, irrespective of their fundamental [and] foundational aspects – they exist to make the society better.” —  Dr. William B. Harvey

“We need institutional leaders to be futuristic, and their approach [to] science education, now more than ever — because without that, you're not going to ask the right questions, you're not going to address the historical illusion, and you're not going to be equipped to write a new narrative. And those things are the premises.” – Dr. Ken D. Coopwood
