Keynote Address

The 2019 Dr. Gordon Geekeynote speaker will be E. Gordon Gee, President of West Virginia University, and one of America's most prominent higher education leaders. President Gee served on the original Kellogg Commission on the Future of State and Land-Grant Universities which, in its final report "Returning to our Roots," called upon public higher education institutions to renew their partnership with society. He will discuss the present challenges and future opportunities for public and land-grant universities in the 21st Century as they are responsible for an ever widening range of constituencies and communities.


Dr. Gee will host a book signing in the South Convention Lobby following the presentation, and copies of Land-Grant Universities for the Future will be available for purchase on-site.
