 “Ours is a world of 24-hour-news cycles, global markets, and high-speed Internet. We need to look no further than our morning paper to see that our future, and the future of our children, is inextricably linked to the complex challenges of the global community. And for our children to be prepared to take their place in that world and rise to those challenges, they must first understand it.”
-- Roderick Paige, Former U.S. Secretary of Education

“It is U.S. workers who lose out when employers cannot get the high-tech graduates they need to compete with foreign companies in the 21st century economy."

-- Christopher “Kit” Bond, Former U.S. Governor and Senator from Missouri

"For almost three decades of my career at The Coca-Cola Company, I lived and worked in Asia. From Singapore to Tokyo to Beijing, I learned about different local cultures by living and working in those cultures. It gave me a profound respect for how people are different, and also for how we are the same. Respecting and understanding the fundamental value of diversity is vital to who we are and the way we do business. Understanding and valuing different cultures has shaped my ability to lead our business, and it's an absolute imperative for anyone who works at The Coca-Cola Company.”
-- Douglas N. Daft, chairman and chief executive officer of The Coca-Cola Company
 

"More and more young Americans go abroad for some of their education...Value will come not just from greater global consciousness, but from the direct experience that many nations simply do many things far better than we do.…These young Americans usually return with an openness about the world that many of their parents lack. No less patriotic than when they left, they see how curiosity about other ways to do things can only make us a stronger country. They were taught, as we were all taught, that the U.S. was built to greatness on ideas borrowed by the rest of the world and improved here. That is what we must do again."
-- Elliot Gerson, executive vice president of the Aspen Institute
