GENERAL SESSION WITH FREEMAN A. HRABOWSKI, III, PH.D.
CREATING A CULTURE OF INNOVATION
Globally, rapid and dramatic demographic, technological, and economic changes present the nation with enormous challenges early in the new century. These changes, which are influencing all walks of life—from education and commerce to the delivery of healthcare and social services—will have a profound, wide-ranging impact on careers of the future, workforce development, and, more generally, America’s competitiveness internationally. Freeman A. Hrabowski, III, Ph.D., President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, one of America’s most diverse university campuses and among the leading producers of underrepresented minority graduates in science and engineering, will discuss the importance to the nation’s future of innovation, institutional culture change, and a global mindset that embraces diversity. He will identify best practices and lessons learned during his presidency over the past two decades, many of which can be replicated in other organizations.
