From the Magazine: Eric Barron, Data Driven
If you followed coverage of last week’s Board of Trustees meeting, you’ll remember that Eric Barron broke tradition in his first address as president. Instead of reading a list of Penn State’s recent accomplishments, he gave a 25-minute seminar on issues of access and affordability in higher education. He presented a lot of charts, graphs, and data, too.
I wasn’t surprised. This past March, I spent a couple of days in Tallahassee reporting a profile on Barron for our May/June issue, and his love of data and metrics came up so frequently that we titled our story Data Driven. If you’ve not read the article, click here to download a PDF of the story and learn a little bit more about Penn State’s 18th president.
