DuBois quote

“A University is a human invention for the transmission of knowledge and culture from generation to generation, through the training of quick minds and pure hearts, and for this work no other human invention will suffice…”  ~W.E. B. Du Bois, 1903

Sometimes I despair that the University has moved into simply providing marketable skills and lost the mission to help us know who we are and where we are in the world.
