May 5, 2012 Baccalaureate & Commencement

DENNIS P. KIMBRO, Ph.D. to be Keynote Speaker

Few individuals impact the day-to-day management of organizations and institutions as Dennis Kimbro. A tireless educator, author, and B-school professor, Dr. Kimbro is universally characterized as one of the most insightful and scholarly writers in the field today. As a lecturer and researcher in the field of management, entrepreneurship and human potential, he encourages his readers to look within to extract the keys that underlie all accomplishment. He received his B.A. and M.A. degrees from the University of Oklahoma, and a doctorate from Northwestern University where he studied wealth and poverty among underdeveloped countries. With his course work behind him, Dr. Kimbro combed the country interviewing scores of America=s most notable achievers. Eventually his inquisition led to the question: How can impoverished black Americans pull themselves out of their poverty and reach their full potential?
