STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER MIGNON L. CLYBURN ON THE

FORMATION OF THE UNIVERSITY COMMUNITY NEXT GENERATION

INNOVATION PROJECT

“Our academic research institutions and their surrounding communities have been critical
resources for our nation. They have educated and prepared many generations to lead this
country, and the world, in both the private and public sectors. Our university communities also
have been crucial in offering us world-class research and ideas that have contributed to longer
and more productive lives and have spurred innovation and economic growth throughout the
globe. Given their significant role in the promotion of the Internet as we know it today, it is only
appropriate that they would be at the forefront in developing the next generation of Internet
applications using an ultra high-speed network.
“As this Commission continues to tackle today’s challenges of ensuring that every
American has access to broadband they need today, I am pleased that the University Community
Next Generation Innovation Project will be working on the broadband America will need in the
future. With the leadership of Blair Levin and Elise Kohn, both of whom I greatly respect for
their dedication and creative thinking on broadband issues, I know this Project announced today
will do great things for our nation.”
