The needs of the world are vast, but so too are our many resources. One of humanity's most valuable resources is young global leadership impacting positive social change, which this foundation endeavors to support. The Luce and Dudley families have had a long and historical commitment to youth, education, and social improvement in the United States and around the world. I aspire to continue this family tradition through the grants, centers, awards, and publications of The James Jay Dudley Luce Foundation - playing a role, however humble, in bettering humanity. My goal is uplifting the worst of humanity while celebrating the best of humanity - especially the arts.
