Clarkson University

Clarkson University seems to be an appropriate place for the series of discussions we have had that led to the creation of this chapter. Located in St. Lawrence County in upstate New York, we are about a 45-minute drive to the Canadian border, about 90 minutes from Canada's capital city, Ottawa, and nearly the same distance from the metropolitan center of Montreal. An hour south are Lake Placid and Adirondack National Park, which still holds the lodges of some of America's wealthiest families. The park has recently enjoyed a renaissance of tourism, hosting numerous business conferences, two international triathlons, a marathon, numerous hockey tournaments, and figure skating competitions. Last spring, bird watchers from across the world came to the park to see the three-toed woodpecker, a rare species in North America.

Clarkson's faculty is comprised of researchers from nearly every continent on the globe, and the school is a world leader in numerous scientific and engineering fields. Like most universities, we enjoy the latest technological innovations. Our students come from all over the world, and many bring with them even more expensive automobiles than those located in the business school parking lot. The local college town, Potsdam, New York, boasts Mexican, Indian, Chinese, and Italian restaurants, and until her recent move to Switzerland, Canadian country music star Shania Twain was occasionally sighted at the local grocery store.
