"What good is a private college unless it is serving a great national purpose?"

I was reminded of this important quote while reading my paper this morning. It's from Anthony Marx, President of Amherst.

Unity College's great national purpose is the environment. Which, in these days of super-floods and super-storms, means that climate change is front and center. There's no point having any other environmental program unless it includes and addresses climate change.

And sustainable energy and agriculture, together with adaptation, are key to climate change.

So I'm aligned and my college is aligned with a great national purpose.

It's nice to have all your ducks in a row.
