146: Education Must Mirror the Workplace - with Dr. Bruce C. Kusch, President, Ensign College

This is The EdUp Experience President Series Episode #48.  In this episode of The EdUp Experience, we welcome Dr. Bruce C. Kusch, President of Ensign College!  Bruce talks to us about the necessity of making the higher education experience mirror, as closely as possible, the world of work.  He asked the question - "why isn't orientation like the first day of work"?  From there, we discuss why it's essential to execute operationally in a competitive environment where the student needs to be an ACTOR, not an OBJECT.  

President Bruce C. Kusch became the 13th president of Ensign College on April 17, 2017, where he had been serving as its chief academic officer since March 2016. He began his Church Educational System employment as a member of the business management faculty at Brigham Young University–Idaho in August 2002.  In July 2008, he was named associate academic vice president for curriculum at BYU–Idaho, serving in that capacity until June 2012 when he was called to serve as president of the Mexico Cuernavaca Mission.  Before joining the BYU-Idaho faculty, President Kusch worked as a sales and marketing executive and management consultant for various high-technology firms in the San Francisco Bay Area.
