For a man who has achieved a lot in life, it may be surprising that Bob Black ’73, J.D. ’76 doesn’t think success is just about winning.
“I believed that government could make a difference in people’s lives, even student government,” Black said. “And in pushing for change, one of the insights I gained was that you really learn by doing. In terms of politics especially, you learn by engagement. Winning isn’t everything; learning is everything.”
