Indiana University President Michael McRobbie received an honorary doctor of letters from his alma mater Monday. McRobbie received his undergraduate degree from the University of Queensland in 1974. Speaking at the conferral ceremony at the Saint Lucia campus, McRobbie remembered the faculty members who had influenced his life, and cited Alfred North Whitehead’s notion of a university’s role in shaping future generations.

In his remarks McRobbie also referred to the week he had just spent visiting universities in China. He says the transformation from the “stultification and paralysis” of the Cultural Revolution to the dynamic society of today in just three decades was possibly unparalleled in human history.
