Heard on Campus: Jean-Michel Cousteau

"We've had it pretty good but the next time you see a kid -- 5- or 7-years-old -- make sure you look him in the eyes and say, 'I am doing everything I can to make sure you have the same privileges I do.'"

-- Jean-Michel Cousteau, marine explorer, filmmaker and founder of the Ocean Futures Society, speaking on Monday, Oct. 19, to an audience of nearly 800 in Penn State's Schwab Auditorium. Cousteau's speech, "The Great Ocean Adventure," was the Schreyer Honors College's Fall Signature Lecture and was co-sponsored by the Presidential Leadership Academy, the Office of Undergraduate Education Laboratory for Public Scholarship and Democracy and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.
