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.
Our guest this month is Dr. Larry Lemanski, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, to talk both about Research as a Guiding Principle, and about the upcoming influx of faculty at A&M-Commerce.
COMMERCE - Quality service, innovation and collaboration were the themes behind the application and recent approval of a $6.6 million Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant to the Texas A&M University System.
