OUR VISION FOR HIGHER EDUCATION:
Higher education will become an instrument through which all people can attain economic advancement, social justice, and a world at peace. Education is a good thing for all people and we should have more of it. Education breaks down barriers between neighbors and nations; it enhances the social fabric by creating understanding and self sufficiency; it particularly benefits those in less favored positions in society; and allied with advancing technology, it can spread enlightenment and enlightened self interest across the globe.
