Higher Education: The Brand That is Transforming Lives and Our Region

  • Our nation is looking to education — specifically, higher education — to develop the talent it needs to compete in today's global, innovation-driven environment.

  • As part of their public-service mission, many public universities are taking significant, leading roles in the areas of innovation, entrepreneurship and regional economic growth. President Lefton will share examples of how Kent State is doing just that as it helps Northeast Ohio survive and thrive.

  • Dr. Lefton also will share lessons he has learned about taking an enterprise from good to great.

  • Be prepared: Dr. Lefton's enthusiasm and optimism about Kent State, public higher education and Northeast Ohio is known to be contagious.
