Interview with Chicago State University President Dr. Wayne Watson with Lisa Medlock of CSU TV News. Dr. Watson is speaking about why the library should be on campus and what it would mean to the Chicago Far South Side.

“Bringing the Obama Presidential Library to CSU is, in essence, bringing ‘change’ home to where it all started”-Marilyn Olson

“Chicago State University has an opportunity to educate the world in diversity. For this reason we believe that it is imperative to the United States place in history at this time to secure Chicago State University’s qualification to host the Obama Presidential Library”-Paula Williams, Chicago State University Alumni

“The Obama Presidential Library situated at the Chicago State University Campus is likely to have a large impact on many levels which will bring about a renewed sense of purpose, economic hope and organizational change which epitomizes the Obama legacy. The Obama Library requires a place that will make its home by asking its neighborhood to live up to the faith and hard work that made President Obama’s historical presidency possible. The Obama Library’s boost for economic development has the potential to change the disparity found on Chicago’s southside like no other endeavor”-Cynthia Valenciano
