This quarter has reinforced for me ever more the force of Alexander von Humboldt’s perspective that geography, literally earth description, revolves around a single word, Zusammenhang, or the interrelationships of phenomena of every kind, both physical and human. My personal and heartfelt congratulations to all of you! Go on from UCLA to embrace this world in all of its diversity. Stay curious. And keep in touch with us at UCLA.
