The obstinate problems of today and tomorrow in our nation and world – poverty, family and community breakdown, restricted access to health care, hunger, overpopulation, global warming and other assaults on the natural environment – must be addressed by our universities if society is to have any chance at all of solving them.
~Kellogg Commission on the Future of State and Land-Grant Universities, March 2000
