The American public and government leaders have lost faith in the noble goals of higher education. Gregory D. Hess, president of Wabash College, will share his thoughts on what has caused the decline in confidence, and propose some paths that good liberal arts colleges, in particular, can take to win back the debate
Gregory D. Hess is in his fifth year as the 16th president of Wabash College.
Prior to his tenure at Wabash, Hess was dean of the faculty and vice-president of academic affairs at Claremont McKenna College and the James G. Boswell Professor of Economics.
A native of San Francisco, he earned his bachelor’s degree with high honors from the University of California-Davis, and his master’s degree and Ph.D. in economics from The Johns Hopkins University.
