Focus on Purpose

In his commencement speech to the 2016 graduating class at M.I.T., Matt Damon shared a piece of wisdom he learned from Bill Clinton: “Turn toward the problems you see…and don’t just turn toward them, engage with them. There are potentially trillions of human beings who will depend on the choices you make ... on your ideas ... on your grit and persistence and willingness to engage.” What does it mean to pursue learning focused on purposeful engagement, rather than on a specific topic or major? Let’s see solutions that tap into tangible, applied experience and problem solving, that evolve in real time with society’s needs.
