  4. Since you started 32 years ago, in what way has your role changed the most?
    "I think the most striking thing about how things have changed around here, including what I do, is interactive with how the society we live in has changed. It’s a very different world in the U.S. since 1982, 32 years later. If anyone had said in 1982 that nearly half the states in the U.S. would have approved marriage for same-sex couples, we would have laughed them out of the room. … That doesn’t mean we don’t have a long way to go, because we still do. But as the world has changed, students have changed. Now, we regularly have 16- and 17-year-old high school students visit often with their parents to find out what it would be like to be at Penn as an out LGBT person. That never would have happened when I first started."
