One of my colleagues sent this YouTube link (embedded below) to the Fort Hays State University Fall 2011 Convocation speech by Provost, Dr. Lawrence V. Gould. Jump to 17:15 to get to the meat of the presentation. I believe this speech is refreshing because I rarely encounter a university Provost, V.P. or President with such a keen understanding of the massive changes (many of them needed) in higher education and how technology can be a catalyst for change. It is clear that Dr. Gould's leadership has been a driving force in the innovative and creative culture (and staggering enrollment growth) at FHSU. It's no surprise that one of his publications is entitled Transformational Leader as Champion and Techie: Implications for Leadership Educators.
