Delay or inadequate investment in our public universities makes it more difficult to take control of Florida’s economy so that it is more relevant for today’s world.

They are progressively pursuing strategies and funding for those strategies in order to put into place the infrastructure that is needed. Those who lag in their efforts or move timidly toward the new economy will find themselves behind the world leaders.
