Bridget Burns, Executive Director of the University Innovation Alliance, and Doug Lederman, Editor and Co-Founder of Inside Higher Ed, speak with Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. As UMBC joins the ranks of UIA membership, Dr. Hrabowski shares his wisdom about the best practices of collaboration among universities, addressing disparities at all levels of the campus, and the power of humility. Topics include:

  • The benefits of comparing how other higher ed institutions problem solve and innovate
  • UMBC's Meyerhoff Scholarship program and Dr. Kizzmekia Corbett
  • The value of serving at and understanding an institution before leading it
  • A positive approach, a focus on substance, and the broad lessons of literature
