What do you do at Troy University?

People often ask this question; so please let me explain.

In 2000, I retired as the civilian Academic Provost of the USAF Air University near Montgomery, to become a Professor of Education at Troy University in Troy, Alabama. In 2003 I was named Director of the Institute for Leadership Development and I have been honored with the title of Distinguished Professor of Leadership.

I love Troy University! The administrators, faculty and staff are superb colleagues. But I especially love my interaction with the outstanding undergraduate students at TROY.

At TROY, I direct various leadership conferences and meetings, but my favorite thing is teaching wonderful students—many of whom choose to complete a minor in leadership studies. The TROY leadership website details the mission and scope of the Institute, but let me say this.

While many who are my age either choose or are forced to retire, I get the opportunity to help many young people who will become leaders in the state of Alabama and the nation—in government, education and business. I am fortunate to be able to share my faith, my values and what I have learned about leadership with a group of young people that I admire, respect and love—and in whom I have the utmost confidence.

I am excited each day to work at Troy University.
