On this day before Thanksgiving, many are asking: what are you grateful for?
Big Ed is grateful for Minnesota's rich tradition of excellence in higher education. For generations, our students have learned from first-class educators, at world-class institutions. Despite ongoing challenges, such as rising costs and funding cuts, our colleges and universities continue to provide some of the best education available worldwide.
I am especially grateful for the students. It is comforting to know that the next generation of leaders is both prepared and eager to meet the challenges of the coming years. On every front - including the environment, health care, the economy, government and more, we trust that today's students will lead us to a brighter future.
