Enriching Human Life and Society Workshop - Opening Remarks
(2/6/2014) 9 minutes


Disparities in the quality of life and access to opportunities among the world's people dominate the discourse among educators, policy makers, health-care providers and others who work to transform lives. The domains here - education, health, innovation, economic growth, sustainability, among others - engage our university's basic strengths, and provide opportunities for discovery and applications well beyond our campus. The Social Sciences, Arts & Humanities, the Arthur C Clarke Center for Human Imagination and other campus groups are natural collaborators in the realm of social innovation, which will also directly involve Medicine, Pharmacy, Biology and Physical Sciences, Engineering, Management, and Oceanography
