The interview, with KAET’s Ted Simons, covered the university’s focus on the “Challenges Before Us” Initiative. The inititiative, which will officially launch in late October, targets a series of key challenges for the university to address through its academic and research efforts.

“For us it has got to be a lot more than just the normal things only,” said Crow. “We are going to do all of those – creative learning, great instruction and great learning for our students. We also want to take all of the power and the know how and the capability of our university and begin addressing a series of challenges that we think are essential for our state and nation to address.”
