these virtues are formed in man by his doing the actions Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit. What is a national perspective to operationalize excellence? Liberal arts foundation Critical thinking

Creative innovation Synthesis Analytics Historical perspective Context Application What is an international perspective to operationalize excellence? J. Grilfoll 2014 Ownership Who is doing it?

Why is a definition promoted? Range process Excellence is a developmental Excellence is a reality Boundaries Excellence is exclusive Diversity
