Speaker / Author:

Robert E. Johnson, Ph.D., took office as the 10th president of Becker College in 2010 and has evolved Becker into an adaptive, nimble, and entrepreneurial institution that is a model for small private colleges in the United States. He believes higher education is a public good, and has dedicated his more-than-25-year career to transforming the lives of young people. He challenges students to build upon the three pillars of global citizenship - academic excellence, social responsibility, and creative expression - to embrace the opportunities inherent in a complex and hyper-connected world. It is his conviction that college graduates must be prepared to adapt and succeed in a dynamic future - one where jobs as we know them may no longer exist, career mobility is the norm, and individuals are responsible for their brand and their business model, and must continuously build their [future] value. This imperative leads Becker College in preparing students with an "Agile Mindset," a set of uniquely human skills that merge learning agility with a value-creation orientation. Graduates are prepared not only for their career trajectories, but also to embrace the myriad challenges and opportunities the future presents.
