While there may be — may be — a kernel of truth here, if I believed that these criticisms fundamentally represented who we are, I would not be standing before you today.

% n. g2 {% ^1 JIt’s worth remembering that most of the nation’s founders were first-generation college students. They not only shaped our form of government, they built new universities.

$ h7 I; [. o: @" V# i1 cEven at some of the most difficult moments in our national history, our leaders understood that they could strengthen the nation by educating more of our society.

My friend Drew Faust has often wished for Harvard that it be as good as it is great. To me, the goodness of Harvard — and of all of our universities — lies in the three essential values we represent: truth, or, as we say here, veritas; excellence; and opportunity.) g' u+ O7 l) l* M) |( s$ O
9 {, i; C6 ?# ~9 p* I( f/ f$ C/ W
Today, we have to embody and defend truth, excellence, and opportunity more than ever. We do this not to stave off our critics, but because these are the values that made our nation great.

As we consider truth, clearly, we’ve come a long way from the days when our colleague United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”- ?+ m' b2 U% K6 K) J" |( B% S1 t
- D( u5 M- C: q) c, a. ~5 X
Now that technology has disintermediated the editorial function, allowing anybody to publish his or her own view of events, our fragmented media struggle to make the distinction between opinion and facts. The result, often, is a feverish diffusion of rumor, fantasy, and emotion unconstrained by reason or reality.
- s3 ?1 x# r! }  [) S  b1 H5 P2 y5 F# C# I( T7 q/ c
And it is precisely because we find ourselves in this post-factual world that strong colleges and universities are essential.
: o6 ^+ y( Y, B% `6 Z" d; H
) V8 p  O& h1 r9 ~& b3 P0 rGiven the necessity today of thinking critically and differentiating the signal from the noise, a broad liberal arts education has never been more important. It is our responsibility to educate students to be discerning consumers of news and arguments, and to become sources of truth and wisdom themselves. : u0 s2 N4 b& X) l9 j- Z) v7 Y3 }- W

; C3 [9 M7 B6 u- C: mOf course, facts and truth are not the same. Facts are incontrovertible, or at least they should be, whereas truth has to be discovered, revealed through argument and experiment, tested on the anvil of opposing explanations and ideas. This is precisely the function of a great university, where scholars debate and marshal evidence in support of their theories, as they strive to understand and explain our world.
8 M6 E1 `0 w) I' s1 P( F# G* o
* _  a" ]4 C- W! l9 kThis search for truth has always required courage, both in the sciences, where those who seek to shift paradigms have often initially met with ridicule, banishment, and worse, and in the social sciences, arts, and humanities, where scholars have often had to defend their ideas from political attacks on all sides.. G$ ?* }/ ?4 b# [3 l8 p

  y. V# x' ~3 v# u7 ]6 D- q5 T+ aThere are both reassuring truths and unsettling truths, and great universities must embrace them both. Throughout human history, the people who have done the most to change the world have been the ones who overturned conventional wisdom, so we should not be afraid to welcome into our communities those who challenge our thinking.
- z* t7 e; ~3 h0 z' V  x! F& _- G* O5 m9 F) E/ V6 T2 ^
In other words, our search for truth must be inextricably bound up with a commitment to freedom of speech and expression.! j: a' [) c0 K/ \, C. L; J

At Harvard, our alumni span the political and philosophical spectrum, including those who have served in the White House, in Congress, on the Supreme Court, and in comparable positions throughout the world. Here in Harvard Yard, we must embrace diversity in every possible dimension, because as Governor Baker said so eloquently, we learn from our differences — and that includes ideological diversity.. x( u4 P9 x8 A. n3 l' T1 R) }
9 [! P4 d/ l7 A" w. K  H/ V; d
As faculty, it is up to us to challenge our students by offering them a steady diet of new ideas to expand their own thinking — and by helping them to appreciate that they can gain much from listening to others, especially those with whom they disagree. We need to teach them to be quick to understand, and slow to judge.
8 a  `( F7 d  u% m; }4 F( w) f) f! x" a; a+ P5 B, f" S+ k: W1 v: a$ B( k

To paraphrase the great theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, it is always wise to look for the truth in our opponents’ error, and the error in our own truth.
/ z( ?, k# e& J) I  X% g9 z' l0 x; Q; }
At Harvard, we must strive to model the behavior we would hope to see elsewhere. For if we can’t talk about the issues that divide us here, on this extraordinarily beautiful campus, where everyone is smart and engaged, where the freedom to speak one’s mind is one of our defining precepts, where we are blessed with abundant resources and no one goes to sleep in fear for his or her life — if we can’t do that here, there is no hope for the rest of the world.

% Y# _( N$ a, b9 O. POur commitment to excellence should never be interpreted as an embrace of elitism. The excellence we represent is not a birthright. It is not something inherited by those born privileged — or even by those born with great aptitude. It is defined by more than numbers, and it encompasses spark and imagination, grit and determination. " [' {7 c8 w# T/ D' r# y

: ~3 \! Q/ m) u7 [+ ?3 VThe excellence we stand for is only achieved through tireless pursuit. Scholarship is about charging down dark alleys, accepting disappointment, and setting off again. It is messy and laborious by definition. Much as we love to celebrate the “Eureka!” moments in our society, they are generally preceded by years of early mornings and late nights. 4 y. b- c4 z! W0 y3 ?# e4 j3 c4 k

. F: ]/ D' B' M# m3 pWe need to remind the nation of the degree to which America’s greatness depends upon this commitment to excellence — and the fact that supporting excellence at college and university campuses does not run counter to the best interests of those who feel left behind by our society.% f; j: M/ S7 y

5 ?& g: i3 W2 Y5 l7 UIndeed, it is scholars here and elsewhere who have sounded the alarm about increasing income inequality and declining social mobility in the United States, and whose ideas will help us become the just society we hope to be.

For it is our art, our literature, our music, and our architecture which are among the most enduring artifacts of human endeavor.

Whether our colleges and universities are public or private, we all rely upon the generosity of the American people, who contribute both to research and financial aid.

We need to ensure that future generations continue to serve the greater good in a variety of ways. It is my hope that every Harvard graduate, in every profession, should be an active, enlightened and engaged citizen.

9 D' }: k) w2 X7 Q
) g% i0 E6 m( M! K* t( c' w2 EThis is why Harvard’s groundbreaking Financial Aid Initiative, started by Larry Summers and expanded by Drew Faust, is so important. We simply say to low- and middle-income families with earnings below a certain level, “You can send your child to Harvard and we will ask you to pay nothing.” Largely because of this, 268 members of this year’s first-year class are the first in their family to attend college.9 v7 v, L7 i& B+ V

1 T4 D4 c! `% q2 M& vOur nation’s magnificent public colleges and universities, where four out of five American students are educated, are key.

In failing to adequately support public higher education, we are literally mortgaging our own future. At a time when other countries are investing more in support of higher education, we as a nation cannot afford to invest less.

As higher education leaders, we also need to do what we can do to bend the cost curve. Higher education is one of the few industries where competition tends to drive costs up. It’s time to stop this arms race, and to consider the benefits of greater cooperation.4 y, g: R4 H3 R3 u& u

, k( q% K2 d- g2 Z% |These can include shared infrastructure for research, joint graduate student and faculty housing, or exchanges that allow us to eliminate some of the redundancies in our curricula and to double down on our specific strengths.

$ O1 v6 A8 p* D( p3 {6 c2 OWe also have to explore the opportunities offered by technology to improve productivity and access.

' r' `( N8 `7 e+ K) G$ r1 v
As college and university presidents, we also need to be much franker in framing the choices our institutions make, so as to reveal their true consequences in terms of cost.

Fortunately, many of the best and the brightest from around the world seek to study at America’s great colleges and universities. In engineering, mathematics, and computer sciences, over half the doctorates awarded each year are granted to foreign nationals.

But a considerable number of these international students will do everything possible to stay right here. Rather than turn them away, we should embrace these extraordinary people.

This is a common story —this is America’s story. With the exception of Native Americans and the descendants of those enslaved or brought here against their will, most of us can trace our origins back to people who, like my parents, came to these shores seeking freedom and opportunity, and a better life for their children. And many continue to make this journey today, despite enormous risks.

就像奥巴马这8年的政策一样。这个混账总统,不停给巴尔的摩输钱,八年输了18billion?巴尔的摩的市政,交通,教育,治安,没有一点好转,只有每况愈下!见《老钱:美国大选,选谁? (一)不要搞社会主义》。每遇事,他立刻匆忙表态,见《老钱:美国大选,选谁? (五)不能再选一只“跛鸭”》。哪怕是BLM公开地伏击猎杀了五名白人警察,他还要牵强附会地往种族歧视上拉!见《老钱:奥巴马要对这次种族屠杀负责》。这样能提高有色族裔的地位吗?不靠竞争,靠政策照顾,只能永远处于劣势。奥巴马8年的政策,就是把黑人兄弟置于永远需要特殊优惠的陷阱里。一遇事,就是上街闹事,只能打砸烧抢;循环往复,没有一点长进。见《老钱:为美国忧/种族问题》。

所以,Trump总统要废除在大学录取中的种族标准。绝对正确。大学录取,只能是择优录取。
