Chancellor McRaven's interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper

Nov 06, 2015

In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday November 5, Chancellor McRaven discusses the threat of ISIS, the importance of national security, and the parallel between serving in the Navy and being Chancellor. 

"The best thing about being in the military was the opportunity to shape the lives of young men and women.  The soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, the Coast Guard, and the DOD civilians that I worked with.  So the opportunity I had coming out of thirty seven years with the Navy was really to come in to this job as the Chancellor at the University of Texas, and hopefully continue to be able to shape the lives of young men and women in Texas and that was the parallel and what really brought me to this job."
