May Building Community
- "What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." —Jane Goodall, MSU Wallace Stegner Lecture speaker in 2008
- "People are absent from the pages of history. There is much that we can incorporate into the traditional disciplines. As a grandmother, I would say, 'slow down.' I would also remind you to be kind. You are the ancestors of those who are yet to come." —Henrietta Mann, founding president of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribal College, the first professor to occupy the MSU Katz Endowed Chair in Native American Studies where she is Professor Emeritus and remains as Special Assistant to the President.
- "We don't accomplish anything in this world alone... and whatever happens is the result of the whole tapestry of one's life and all the weavings of individual threads form one to another that creates something." —Sandra Day O'Connor, first female Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court and speaker at the Museum of the Rockies 50th anniversary celebration speaker series, 2007
- "You take people as far as they will go, not as far as you would like them to go." —Rep. Jeannette Rankin, R-Mont., the first woman elected to the U.S. Congress and the only member of Congress to vote against both WWI and WWII. Recipient of an MSU honorary degree in 1961
