“For that (developing an ADDU leader sui generis) we need a leadership-development infrastructure, e.g., a culture of instruction which draws out and encourages the leadership among students, encouraging them to articulate their thoughts (not memorized thoughts of others) and think “out of the box.” Such thinking should be treated with respect, in manner that is encouraging but not patronizing. In the end, it is truth that is sought, not wishful thinking; it is reality that is desired, not idle dreams.” [Address: Joint ADDU Faculty Convocation, Finster Auditorium, 6.1.12]
