Happy Labor Day Professors, Thank You!

Professors; listen up.

You rock.

You have dedicated your lives to inquiry, learning, teaching, and the development of minds and spirits (yours and your students).  You do research that matters; even when you are not certain of its impact. You have persevered over many years, over many decades.

You are labor heroes! You no not forge steel like the American labor heroes of the past, but you forge minds! Who has contributed more to the economic and social development of our country? I would say nobody. You are the embodiment of the spirit of resilience, tenacity, problem solving and service that exemplifies the best of who we are.

Now, a challenge, to professors and non-professors alike. Say thank you to one professor who has made a difference in your life. Regardless of when and where they made a difference. Reach out, say thank you. They deserve it, as do you!
