Intellectual independence is the hallmark of a first-rate education. I'm most proud of the fact the undergraduates in our program leave the institution with a healthy combination of self-confidence and self-criticism. They know they've still got a lot to learn, but they're confident in their ability to learn it. I can't think of a more productive attitude for an educated person to hold.
