MIT President at Technion: Universities Play a Major Role in Making a Better World

Prof. Rafael Reif spoke at Technion’s Honorary Doctorate Conferment Ceremony

“In the United States and in many nations around the world, now is a moment of change. As we navigate uncertainty around the globe, it is useful to remind ourselves and the world that universities can be a powerful, steady force for good. In fact, I believe that this moment offers a remarkable opportunity for research universities to be leaders: leaders in education, leaders in research, and in particular, leaders in solving problems, to make a better world.”

The remarks were made on Monday by MIT President Prof. Rafael Reif, at Technion’s Honorary Doctorate Conferment Ceremony.

Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie spoke at the ceremony about the rapidly changing world and  academia’s duty to adapt itself to these changes. “Among other things, we must provide our students with the tools they will need in the changing labor market, adopt the appropriate learning methodologies for the new world, expand a frameworks to encourage interdisciplinary research, and strengthen the triangular relationship between academia, government, and industry. Thanks to leaders like you, honorary doctorate recipients, I have no doubt that we will be able to successfully deal with the fourth industrial revolution which we are in the midst of.”
