Beschreibung

During Bernie Machen's ten-year tenure, the face of high education in Florida has served as a bellwether for other state university systems in fighting funding decreases, fending off legislative pressures, applying on-line learning to the UF mission, andcreating world-class centers in the STEM disciplines. This volume will highlight the challenges and history of today's state universities.

Autorentext

Bernie Machen has served as the eleventh president of the University of Florida since 2004. Prior to UF, he spent six years as president of the University of Utah. He also served as provost and executive vice president for academic affairs at the University of Michigan and dean of the UM School of Dentistry. He is a past president of the American Association of Dental Schools and was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Salt Lake Olympic Organizing Committee. Aaron Hoover is an award-winning speechwriter who has worked closely with President Machen since 2005. A former science writer and newspaper reporter, he is the executive speechwriter in the UF President's Office.



Klappentext

The modern university is a beacon for students, a home for scholars, a hub of culture in the community, an engine of discovery, an economic force--a place of many purposes, all facing change or reinvention. This selection of speeches from University of Florida president Bernie Machen, with executive speechwriter Aaron Hoover, offers insights on public higher education and its challenges from the helm of one of the largest land-grant universities in the US.
