“You all know well that our mission at the Dyson School is to use business for the greater good. Our motto says it all: Our business is a better world. This phrase means different things to different people. Remember that you stand on the shoulders of giants. Every day Dyson alumni make it their mission to use business for a better world.”
      —Dean Lynn Wooten

Dean Wooten shared with students the concepts she aims to incorporate into her life each day:

  • Be relentless in your pursuit of knowledge
  • Be bold, dare to show up different and have fun
  • Be kind
  • Persevere
  • Lead by example

“Today, we are all here to celebrate you. We reflect on everything you have accomplished. As you leave Cornell and begin your next big adventure, remember this: Whatever your business, whatever your dream, use it to leave the world a better place. Success will surely follow.”
      —Dean Lynn Wooten
