What to look for on Radio Smart Talk Wednesday, July 31, 2013:
Dr. John Anderson -- the new president of Millersville University -- will appear on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk.
A discussion with the new or outgoing leaders of colleges and universities in Central Pennsylvania is a Radio Smart Talk staple. It gives the region an opportunity to learn more about the new leader's vision for the school, address current issues related to higher education, and describe the college's place in its local community. Most colleges or universities are viewed as anchor institutions and see themselves as having a responsibility to give back and help their communities grow.
We'll also ask Dr. Anderson about his views on college affordability and preparing students for today's job market.
Millersville was at the center of a controversy two months ago when a number of students protested Gov. Tom Corbett's appearance as the university's commencement speaker. The protestors were critical of cuts made to education funding during the Corbett Administration's time in office. Dr. Anderson will address the issue.
Dr. Anderson's appointment began last April so he's had a few months to observe and plan for the campus, that has more than 8,400 students.
Millersville President Dr. John Anderson
