The Shaping of an Educated Heart.
Boyer, Ernest L.
This commencement address stresses three obligations that colleges and universities must assume to strengthen the intellectual and moral fiber of the United States: (1) colleges underscore the unity of life on earth; (2) a college education must be a truly humanizing experience, a process that stresses the dignity of life and deepens the conviction that people are important; and (3) we must begin to weave into the fabric of education the capacity to make judgments, to form convictions, and to act boldly on the values we hold.
