Universities do more

Research output: Contribution to journalContribution to newspaper - Feature articleCommunication

In the public eye, universities are typically acknowledged for providing two kinds of services: education and research. But universities do much more—and with a long shelf life, too.

Universities also promote classic virtues like to seize the day—carpe diem; dare to know—sapere aude; the value of hard work—semper ardens; and to hurry slowly with reflection—festina lente. Good old-fashioned Latin strong suits.

The narrative of instilling these virtues is hardly ever advertised by academia. Why not? Partly because they sound almost archaic. But they don’t have to be—especially not in this digital day and age.
