Penn State Values: Excellence

Penn State Values: Excellence


(tranquil synth music) – You know, I have friends at
schools all over the country, but one thing I think
that has been really great about my experience is
I’ve been surrounded by a lot of very high-performing people, sort of who really strive for excellence. – Encouraging investigators to strive for excellence, which isn’t gonna be easy. If excellence was easy,
everyone would be doing it. We have to try to tackle
difficult problems and provide support for people to do that. – I see excellence every time
I poke my head into the studio and see students practicing
over and over again. I see excellence every time I look into our departmental office, and
I see our wonderful staff solving another issue that a student had. I see excellence as I
walk down the hallways, and I look in at a faculty
member advising a student, just to make sure next
semester’s schedule is perfect.
