Institutions are one of the most fragile in our world today and it will require a lot more resolve to preserve and protect the values underlying educational institutions like CEU. I stand behind CEU in that journey and hope that it retains strength and direction in the face of popular appraisal. That CEU resonates with all those institutions around the world which are sought to be limited, or even worse denuded. As these battle grounds are drawn deeper, I stand with CEU and hope that each of us share the burden of fostering and perhaps nurturing freedom and openness.
