This address, on the inauguration of Hofstra University’s 8th President, Oct. 19, 2001, offers President Rabinowitz’ vision as he begins his tenure. He writes of a need for self-examination; reaffirmation and refinement of our core mission; and a need to face what we want Hofstra to become over the next decade. His goal is to enhance and strengthen Hofstra's academic infrastructure as well as its academic reputation, profile and prestige. He considers an apparent dichotomy between teaching and scholarship and affirms that rather than a conflict the two are critical and complementary components of the core mission. The role of new technology, the place of the community, specifically Nassau County, and the vital need for ever-expanding resources all are part of the vision articulated here.
