Dr. Eric Barron | Issues in Education (January 2010)

Outgoing FSU President T.K. Wetherell introduces us to the next new President of The Florida State University. In December, FSU’s Board of Trustees named Dr. Eric Barron as the University’s next leader. Over the program’s 30 minutes, Dr. Barron and Dr. Wetherell discuss the challenges facing FSU in the coming years, how Dr. Barron plans to address budget concerns, research issues, and how he plans to encourage a “student-centered” University. Dr. Barron also talks about moving to Tallahassee, advice Dr. Wetherell has given him, and when the transition of power will take place.
