Where:
Hammerschmidt Memorial Chapel
Time:

Description:

What do colleges and universities bring to a society? Among other things, they form the basis of great cities where smart people want to live, fostering open and dynamic urban environments and attracting business and capital. Richard Florida established the significance of this emerging “creative class” in a best-selling book that confirmed his reputation as a preeminent urban theorist. Intelligent people, he says, are the most valuable natural resource of the 21st century.
