This summer will mark 23 years since Freeman Hrabowski became president of the University of Maryland-Baltimore County. A good key to what excites him about the job every day is the slender book he just published, part memoir and part policy prescription. It’s titled "Holding Fast to Dreams". He joins Sheilah in the studio to talk about it.
