IDC Luncheon hosted Dr. Robert Weisbuch, President Drew University, on Tuesday February 9, 2010 at 12:00 PM.

Dr. Robert Weisbuch
Dr. Robert Weisbuch was appointed Drew's eleventh president in July 2005. A distinguished scholar of American literature, he brings to the university a deep commitment to teaching, research and public service, including a lifelong belief in the importance of outreach to underserved groups.
President Weisbuch's vision for Drew involves redefining what a liberal arts education means and applying learning to the public good. The university's decision to make the SAT optional for applicants to the College of Liberal Arts was inspired by his belief in a holistic approach to assessing the learning potential of each applicant.
Prior to coming to Drew, Dr. Weisbuch spent eight years as president of the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. During that time, the foundation was engaged in initiatives such as The Humanities at Work, The Responsive Ph.D., Teachers as Scholars, and High School Early College. In all, he emphasized the foundation's role in connecting higher education to the social sectors beyond academia and in connecting the levels of education to each other.
