´╗┐Chancellor University of Washington Tacoma

At UW Tacoma, I have been struck, time and again, by the stories of students lives. They have found their way here in an endless variety of ways. Some have come directly from high school. More often, their lives have taken twists and turns after high school. Some have come here after military service. Others have raised a family first. Yet others have started down one path in a job or career, and have chosen to forge a different one.

The hunger to learn, motivation to give back, and resilience in the face of lifes many challenges are the common threads among the varied biographies.

Resilience is powerful. As a concept, it refers to the capacity that individuals, organizations, and communities have to recover and persist in the face of acute stress. Research shows that individuals who are resilient demonstrate optimism, balance, sustainability, determination, flexibility, diversity and connectedness. In other words, resilient individuals are those who can continue to see the best in a situation, consider alternative pathways, draw sustenance from strong relationships with others, and can act thoughtfully. It will not surprise you that education is related to resilience: the ability to analyze, consider multiple consequences, and to chart alternative courses of action all advance resilience.

Earning a baccalaureate degree places you in an elite group in the US and the world, and earning a masters degree places you in an even more elite group. With that status comes the responsibility to use your education to make the world a better place than you found it.

Not only are individuals characterized by more or less resilience, so too are organizations and communities. Our ability as a campus to withstand some of the budget challenges of the past few years and to remain optimistic, missiondriven, connected to one another, and to try new ways of attaining our goals under new constraints, all demonstrate organizational resilience. We will strive continuously to increase our capacity for resilience. As you go on to join and lead organizations, your capacity to help those organizations through tough times, as well as good times, will be critical.

We are the communitys university: established by the dreams, vision, and action of leaders of the South Sound. Tacoma, in particular, is a resilient community, but it like all communities relies on every new generation to take up the mantle of leadership. Thats you! My colleagues and I are immensely proud of you, our graduates.

´╗┐Can US trust North Korean leader to act rationally

But just how confident can Pentagon officials be about whether Mr. Kim is a rational actor?

Could he, in fact, be young, reckless, without great political savvy and in grave danger of making a move that could set off a chain of events including an inadvertent war with dire consequences?

Weve seen some historical trajectory here on where North Korea occasionally will go to try to get the attention of the United States, to try to maneuver us into some position favorably to them, whether its more assistance or bilateral engagement, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said during a press conference last week.

But the fact is that this is the wrong way to go. The action that hes taken and the actions theyve taken and the words hes used, it is not going to project a more responsible, accountable relationship.

That seems evident. But how clear is it that Kim knows what hes doing, anyway? And is he, in fact, the one in charge? Or could he be vying for power with, say, North Korean military leaders?

On this question, Mr. Hagel appeared, publicly at least, to have little interest in a North Korean version of Kremlinology. Well, hes the leader, he said. I mean, hes the leader of North Korea.

Defense analysts say that there are indeed some hints that Kim may be losing his hold on the military.

There have been defections of small units of North Korean soldiers to China soldiers who were subsequently turned around and sent back to North Korea, says retired Brig. Gen. Russell Howard, former commander of the 1st Special Forces Group, which has an Asia focus.

This may seem like a positive development, but it is a problem because it means that Kim may feel the need to reassert his control over the military, by beating the war drum and trying to get his troops to rally around it. The more he needs their support, the harder he might beat the drum.
