A Discussion with Gordon Gee

President, West Virginia University

New Books Network 2021

Gordon Gee was named the Top University President in the U.S. by Time Magazine, and is the only higher education leader to have been a president 7 times, including return stints at both The Ohio State University and WVU. He shares lessons and insights from his more than 4 decades of experience as a university president, including how he has boiled down all the information he needs to run WVU onto a card he can carry in his wallet. He discusses the vital role of our flagship public universities that he describes in detail in Land-Grant Universities for the Future: Higher Education for the Public Good (Johns Hopkins University Press), and that will appear in a new book with the same publisher.

David Finegold is the president of Chatham University.
