The great thinkers of the world, past and present, extend the realm of the possible. Year after year, they also continue to inspire generations of University of Notre Dame students and alumni.

While studying philosophy at Notre Dame, Paul E. Tierney Jr. ('64) was inspired to "think different." Today, after a successful career in business, he is chairman of TechnoServe, a nonprofit organization that provides training and guidance to entrepreneurs in developing economies in India, Africa, and Latin America.

And thanks to Notre Dame Professor of the Humanities Steve Fallon and other scholar-teachers like him, tomorrow's thought leaders—students such as Elizabeth Davis who plans to address food sustainability after her graduation in 2012—are still being educated to ask questions that matter and to use their curiosity, critical thinking skills, and creativity to analyze complex problems in service of the common good.

They demonstrate that while there are no simple answers to universal problems, there are new perspectives and solutions worth pursuing.
