Exhibition: To Reach Our Farthest Star: Leading the University of Rochester, 1850-2019

In his 1963 inaugural address, President W. Allen Wallis noted that if the University of Rochester did not already have a fine motto in Meliora, it might choose To each his farthest star as a pledge and exhortation to its students "to do more and different things than is expected… to be driven by [our] own inner expectations and standards."

Recognizing the inauguration of Sarah Mangelsdorf as Rochester's 11th president, this exhibit highlights the work of her predecessors in creating and transforming the intellectual, physical, and cultural foundations of today's University.
