November Awareness

  • "If you don't like something change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
    —Maya Angelou, recipient of the MSU Presidential Medal for Global Leadership in 2011
  • "Only if we understand, can we care. Only if we care, we will help. Only if we help, we shall be saved."
    —Jane Goodall, 2008 MSU Wallace Stegner Lecture Series
  • "I don't use "melting pot," because a melting pot is a kind of an assimilationist view. And yet a "mosaic" gives the impression of these various different colored pieces that fit together, and it's all very beautiful. I think jazz music would be a better one now. We're making something out of differences. It's not always total harmony either, but we're working at it. My metaphor is not mosaic, it's not salad bowl, it's not melting pot. It's really music."
    —Diana Eck, 2013 spring honorary doctorate recipient and international expert on religious diversity based at Harvard University
  • "I don't have to participate in another culture's ceremonies in order to respect that culture."
    —Sherman Alexie, author, comedian, winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and 2005 MSU speaker
