Refreshing Convocation Speech by FHSU Provost Larry Gould

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.
