January 31, 2021 Voice of America

In an article about the Biden administration's moves to reaffirm a national commitment to integrity in scholarship and research, Lewis commented to Voice of America, said he addresses suspicions about higher education by asking skeptics if they prefer the doctor who finished first in their graduating class or the one who finished last.  

“No one raises their hand” for the last in the class, Lewis said. “And I say, ‘So you do value education.’ Why is it that some of us who have been in higher education are viewed as part of the enemy class, rather than the class that can provide solutions to the problems that we all face?”
