BALTIMORE – UMBC President Freeman A. Hrabowski, who delivered the keynote address at the American Council on Education (ACE) 2007 Annual Meeting, is pictured on the cover of the spring 2007 issue of The Presidency, ACE’s magazine for higher education leaders.

In an entry titled, “The Access Imperative,” President Hrabowski discusses how higher education “can ensure that students from all backgrounds (can) not only enroll in college, but also excel. The president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County says finding answers to this question are imperative for our nation.”

The higher education community considers the annual ACE keynote address, known as the Robert H. Atwell Lecture, to be one of the year’s most important public speaking events.
