President Brian O. Hemphill – We Cannot Get Comfortable

President, Old Dominion University

"Every one of the individuals that are sitting around the table are thinking not about where we're going to be one year from now, two years from now; we're thinking about where the competition is moving and how we make the adjustments to not just meet them, but to move beyond where they are, and you must innovate in order to do that."

Join us for this inspiring and forward thinking episode of Rebuilding the American Dream with President Brian Hemphill of Old Dominion University. As many know, there are significant challenges in higher education. President Hemphill and his faculty and staff will not allow themselves to get comfortable as they look ahead. They are working to make sure Old Dominion is well prepared for what may come next: highlighting ODU’s unique regional footprint, 35+ years of distance learning experience and “playing to the strengths of the institution.”

President Hemphill held leadership positions at Radford University, West Virginia State University, Northern Illinois University, University of Arkansas, University of North Carolina Wilmington, and Cornell College. He has earned degrees from Saint Augustine’s University, Iowa State University of Science and Technology, and a Ph.D. from the University of Iowa.
