"As an expert on the geopolitics of energy, Dan Yergin has examined the interface of science and public policy in depth," says Ed Stolper, interim president of Caltech. "Caltech students will benefit from being challenged to put the scientific work for which they have been preparing into a broader social context. We are excited to bring him to campus for commencement in June."

This Veterans Day we pause to honor the generations of extraordinary Americans—among them, past and present members of the Caltech community—for their service to our country as part the United States Armed Forces. These women and men are our friends, relatives, neighbors, and colleagues. They are Caltech faculty, staff, and students who answered our nation's call in its hour of need, and who embody our tradition of service to society.

A new school year is underway, and I would like to celebrate some recent milestones reflecting our hard work and devotion to excellence. Caltech is #1! Yesterday we learned that the Institute has been rated as the number one university in the 2011–2012 Times Higher Education global ranking of the top 200 universities, knocking Harvard University out of the top spot for the first time in the survey’s eight-year history.

On Sunday, our nation will mark the 10th anniversary of the tragic events of 9/11. I was reflecting on this milestone, and on the turbulent character of this past decade, when I heard an interview with columnist Tom Friedman on the challenges facing the U.S. right now.
