Dean Berrien Moore III

"Your degrees have prepared you to advise others on how best to use Earth’s natural resources in ways that benefit humankind while minimizing negative impacts on the environment, and how to provide severe weather warnings that assist in saving lives, protecting property, maintaining a strong economy, and meeting the expanding needs of air transportation. You are now a professional in your chosen discipline and as such, have a special responsibility to use your knowledge of the Earth wisely and carefully as you embark on your career."
