Kindness needs to be as Contagious as the Virus! A New Higher Education Presidency

The EdUp Experience President Series, Episode #9 - On this episode of The EdUp Experience, we welcome Dr. Chris Roellke, the new President of Stetson University,   Chris talks to us about the efforts higher education leaders can take during these difficult times to create trust and transparency amongst staff and students.  He also discusses efforts the President must take to ensure faculty are representative of the student body, how social media trolls say hurtful things under the cowardice of anonymity, and why kindness needs to be our new normal.  Dr. Chris Roellke is widely regarded as an exceptionally effective and collaborative higher education leader who is a past president for the Association of Education Finance and Policy, a 2014 Fulbright Scholar and the founder and fundraiser of Vassar College's Urban Education Initiative.
