Jeb Bush, the former governor of Florida, is currently an executive professor at the Bush School of Government and Public Service, the school named for his father, the 41st President of the United States George H.W. Bush. Students in the class are learning about the role of gubernatorial leadership and its impact on government at all levels. The more than 60 students enrolled in the 10-day course will hear firsthand accounts from not only Gov. Bush, but other governors and state legislators on the roles and responsibilities of state leaders in an increasingly diverse nation.
As chief academic officer, Sams will lead the university’s academic enterprise for over 70,000 students on the main campus in College Station, branch campuses in Galveston and Qatar, and educational sites across Texas.
