Dr. Marc Parlange – Investment In Higher Education Is An Investment Into Our Future Communities

President, University of Rhode Island

""We really need their [government officials] support. How their support goes, is obviously going to have a major impact on the future of the university. An investment in the university is really an investment in the future of the state of Rhode Island.”

The University of Rhode Island, while located in a small state, has a tremendous amount of impact in the local communities and even state-wide. In building coalitions and partnerships with local, state and federal officials, Dr. Parlange has been able to create great champions for the work that URI is doing to better the citizens of the state and entice folks from out of state to enroll and enjoy the incredible programs and beautiful nature URI has to offer – which has shown in its increase in enrollment numbers over the last two years.

Dr. Parlange received his Masters of Science and his doctorate from Cornell University and his Bachelor of Science degree from Griffith University in Australia.
