The May edition of COAST Magazine has ranked Ruebén Martinez at number 7 in “50 Landmarks, Legends and Locales that make Orange County Amazing.” It was nice to see that Rueben Martinez was ranked in the top 10 at number 7.

Lidia is a faculty member at that university who had a courtesy international appointment at Chapman last fall and wanted to welcome us to her campus, introduce us to her deans and colleagues and give Chapman faculty and students on our travel course a tour to several of their facilities.
The topic this evening is more than just another talk for me. The purpose of education, the aims of education, is something I have thought about deeply over these years. So when I say to you that this topic has never been more important to us as a society than it is today, I do so thoughtfully, critically and with the passion and confidence that by understanding the aims of education we can create a better society, a better world.
