An evening with Secretary Madeleine Albright

“I understood early that international affairs was not just another academic subject, it was a matter of life and death for real people whose fate could be determined by the moral and policy choices that were made,” said former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright. “These convictions were only strengthened for me in my years as Secretary of State.” Albright spoke to a packed house at Strong Auditorium on the University of Rochester River Campus. Her talk is part of the University’s “Difficult Conversations as a Catalyst for Change,” which is presented by Donald Hall, the Robert L. and Mary L. Sproull Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Sciences & Engineering.

‘Finding the Courage to Lead’

In her keynote address at the 10th Annual Diversity Conference, novelist, activist, and commentator Samina Ali described the fear she faced when the birth of her son left her with brain damage. “I was scared, and I was completely alone,” says Ali. “Courage is like any other physical function in your body … each time we exercise our brave heart we are reinforcing our neural pathways for courage.” (University of Rochester photo / J.

Make me a perfect match

Michael Estephan is congratulated after opening his Match Day envelope. At noon precisely, Estaphan and approximately 100 students from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry joined medical students from around the country to simultaneously open sealed envelopes and learn where they’re headed for their residencies. The day caps off years of work and study as the students learn where they will spend the next several years in training for their first jobs as physicians, with Rochester students filling residencies at the top medical centers in the country.
