Kelley School: Making A Difference




Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship. Because as long as you're there, you can make a difference.
    - James T. Kirk to Jean-Luc Picard, Star Trek: Generations


Meaning: In academia, the "bridge of that ship" includes teaching, research, and - perhaps most of all - advising. Promotion entails moving out of research into purely administrative positions, and transfers are analogous to changing jobs and careers, including moving into industry. My destiny, I truly believe, is to stay in research and advising to make that difference.

This is part of the David E. Kelley School of Advising series.
