Delivered March 8, 2001 at IANR Day.


We are called to great work, you and I.
We are called to fulfill the mission of the land-grant university, and I consider that as much a distinct honor as it is a serious responsibility.
I am so pleased to be able to meet that honor and that responsibility by working with all of you, and I’m delighted to talk with you today. While I haven’t had the opportunity to meet everyone in this room, I’ve certainly been glad for all the opportunities that have arisen to meet some of you. And I look forward to getting to know others. I am excited to be here in Nebraska, and I’m enthusiastic about all I think we can do, working together, to advance the mission of the Instituted and the University, and to be of service to the citizens of Nebraska.
