Call in to speak with the host
Sponsored by Lone Star College - University Park
Welcome to Visionary Leadership for Higher Education, a program designed to change the face of higher education as we know it. We hear so much about the failures of education and the future of education that the average person must begin to wonder if it is all worth it! Even those of us in the field are continually searching for answers and solutions. In spite of all of the problems in education we still hear the statistics that most anyone with a two- or four- year degree will be capable of being employed and their earning power will far surpass that of high school graduates.
In our reasoning, this is where Visionary Leadership comes in, and the purpose of this program is to provide a repository for that thought process in higher education today and a springboard for leaders toward the future. Our objective is to change, not only the opinions about higher education, but the face of higher education as well through Visionary Leadership.
Your hosts are William Ihlenfeldt, Author of Visionary Leadership and retired community college president, and Michael Mathews, Chief Strategist for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. We have both been involved in many aspects of higher education for decades and are both committed to the future of higher education. Our paths have crossed in the professional world at the community college level as well as in the literary world through various publications and titles.
Each month we will be discussing Visionary Leadership in Higher Education with individuals from around the country who have made a difference. During that hour each month you will have the opportunity to question and challenge those experts as we question and dialogue with them on the air
It's good to talk.
