University Citizenship

Romayne Botti

"My heart is in the work."

On November 15, 1900, Andrew Carnegie formally announced: "For many years I have nursed the pleasing thought that I might be the fortunate giver of a Technical Institute to our City..." He concluded with the words "My heart is in the work." which would become part of the school's official seal, designed by Tiffany and adopted in May 1912.
