FALL 2016
Vision.
Vision is what guides leaders and inventors, scientists and artists, and
moves society forward. It is what motivates humans to keep focused
and push on, despite roadblocks or challenges along the way.
Today’s great ideas in science and digital technology started with a
possibility: a glimpse into the future of what could be.
This fall, we welcomed the Class of 2020 — a generation
whose understanding of the world has been informed by the power
of information technology, handheld devices and social media. Over
the next four years, they will encounter new ideas and the latest
technologies, start new businesses and take advantage of opportunities
for global learning and high-powered research.
Clarkson’s unique educational model is built on a vision that
tomorrow’s problem solvers will need more than accumulated knowledge and the latest
technical skills to develop the creative solutions that will improve our world; they will need to
think creatively and broadly, work globally, calculate risks and recognize opportunities.
In this issue of the Clarkson magazine, you will meet educators and researchers, business
owners and technology experts who are bringing their broad-based and visionary thinking into
the classroom, the laboratory and the global workplace every day.
As members of our first-year class set out on their educational journeys, they will begin to
develop their own vision for their future.
