Tahniah buat isteri tersayang atas graduasi di Konvokesyen UIAM baru-baru ini
Ilmu SIKAP dan ilmu PENGALAMAN tiada dalam kelas. Namun ia adalah penentu sebenar kejayaan seseorang dan bukannya 'a piece of degree' di hari-hari Konvokesyen yang sedang berlangsung di serata IPTA sekarang.
"I’ve been waiting more than 30 years to say this: “Dad, I always told you I’d come back and get my degree.” I want to thank Harvard for this timely honor. I’ll be changing my job next year. And it will be nice to finally have a college degree on my résumé.
That’s why I was invited to speak at your graduation. If I had spoken at your orientation, fewer of you might be here today.
Let me make a request of the deans and the professors – the intellectual leaders here at Harvard: As you hire new faculty, award tenure, review curriculum, and determine degree requirements, please ask yourselves: Should our best minds be dedicated to solving our biggest problems? Should Harvard encourage its faculty to take on the world’s worst inequities? Should Harvard students learn about the depth of global poverty, the prevalence of world hunger, the scarcity of clean water, the girls kept out of school, the children who die from diseases we can cure?
Don’t let complexity stop you. Be activists. Take on the big inequities. It will be one of the great experiences of your lives." - Bill Gates
