On Sunday night, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban posted a blog that calls out higher education as a root cause for unnecessary national debt. On Wednesday, Dr. Dan Jones, president of Texas A&M University-Commerce, addressed Mr. Cuban's concerns.
On the April 2012 edition of The President's Perspective, Dr. Jones invites Grammy-award-winning songwriter and musician Brad Davis into the studio to talk about an event scheduled for this month in Downtown Commerce. We also take a few minutes to discuss the importance of giving during the Spring Pledge Drive.
This month's Perspective focuses on a thorough answer to an important question: How do we measure the value of education? Dr. Jones also wraps a discussion of the University's Guiding Principles with the Communication installment, and we talk with music student Chris Ramos ahead of the Carnegie Hall trip.
