A Message from our President

You may think that as a university president...I have possessed a life-long love for education. Well, not so. As a young girl I constantly complained about school and its drudgery.  Nevertheless, my demanding mother, a first generation American of Japanese parents, took academic achievement very seriously. Her constant reply was, “School is work. Work is good. Now get to work!” As a point of honor, I obeyed.  It was not until later in life that I began to sincerely appreciate the real value of education.
