Cornell President David Skorton, now in his third year, shares his thoughts about the university with Dean Glenn Altschuler in CyberTower's October 2008 forum. They discuss Cornell's core missions in teaching, research, and public service, the challenges of maintaining a diverse faculty and student body, supporting Cornell's local, national, and international programs, and the ways a busy university president stays in touch with students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

Skorton is Cornell University's 12th president, and is a seasoned administrator, board-certified cardiologist, biomedical researcher, musician and advocate for the arts and humanities.
