From the introduction, by David Lipsky, “In dreams begin responsibilities. The dream that Irving Ives and a handful of others had over half a century ago ultimately became the preeminent institution of its type in the world. I have had the honor and privilege of being the first ILR alumnus to serve as dean of the school, and I am acutely conscious of the profound responsibility borne by all of us who love the school-the responsibility to preserve the great legacy of the last 50 years by ensuring that the school is well prepared for the 21st century." Includes: Changes in the Curriculum; Changes in the Workplace; Change and Continuity; Growth; Response to Danger; and Fulfillment of a Dream.
