Recent Posts from Dr. Bras
I grew up in a middle-class family in Puerto Rico. My childhood was a worry-free existence — we were safe in school, in stores, and on the streets.
As he enters his 10th year as the provost of Georgia Tech, Rafael L. Bras shares his aspirations and a series of goals for the 2019-20 academic term.
This week marks the 50th anniversary of the most extraordinary engineering and technological feat that the world has ever seen. It was a day like today that Apollo 11 took off on its historic spaceflight to the moon. In my opinion, we have not surpassed that technological feat and will not until humans return to the moon, still some five years away. From a technological and scientific perspective, I believe that there is almost nothing we can’t achieve. The pace of new knowledge and new technology is breathtaking. Unfortunately, even over centuries, our mastery of human relations has not made that much progress.
On May 31 I was honored to receive an honorary doctorate in education from Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in Puerto Rico, where I was born and grew up.
Our alumni make us proud. Not only are they extremely well-educated entrepreneurs who create wealth for many, but they are great human beings and loyal Georgia Tech alumni who are also providing outstanding services to their alma mater.
I am not a spiritual or religious man. I try hard to be a good man, undoubtedly influenced by my Catholic upbringing and education. It is in that context that I find it particularly horrific to wake up to the news of a terrorist attack on Christian churches in Sri Lanka.
