Session Abstract

KEYNOTE: Outlook for the Future of Research Institutions by Dr. Freeman Hrabowski
In his keynote address, Dr. Hrabowski will cover a range of issues facing the R&E community, including the importance of long-term partnerships for research institutions, how chief information officers can become key stakeholders in IT decision making for large R&E institutions, and what can be done about the lack of diversity in STEM disciplines.

Dr. Hrabowski has been president of University of Maryland Baltimore County since 1992 and also serves as a consultant on science and math education to national agencies, universities, and school systems. He was recently named by U.S. President Barack Obama to chair the newly created President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African Americans. He also chaired the U.S. National Academies’ committee that produced the recent report, Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation: America’s Science and Technology Talent at the Crossroads. Dr. Hrabowski has received numerous recognitions for his leadership excellence, including being named one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World by TIME (2012) and one of America’s Best Leaders by U.S. News & World Report (2008). During his tenure, UMBC has been recognized as a model for academic innovation and inclusivity, including ranking as U.S. News & World Report’s No. 1 “Up and Coming” university in the U.S. for the past six years.
