One of the greatest contributions we could make to future generations is a commitment to prepare our children for the "world of work." Many colleges and universities throughout the United States have already adopted that commitment, but it needs to start much earlier. The "world of work" is changing at a very rapid pace. The commitment is no longer to prepare students for a local job, but to prepare them for a world immersed in a global economy; a global marketplace; a global workforce. Wherever one works, success depends on the ability to adapt and thrive within this global environment.
