How The Civil Rights Movement Inspired UMBC President Freeman Hrabowski

Beacon Press / Creative Commons

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.

More of our interview with Dr. Hrabowski:

Dr. Hrabowski on how college achievement is obtained through support.

Will Dr. Hrabowski be looking for another job anytime soon?
How does optimistic education policy impact inner city Baltimore youth?
How to get children excited about math.

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
