Conversation About the Future – Paul LeBlanc

Sit down with a cup of joe and get your fix on the future as Ian hangs out with the most innovative university president in America. Dr. Paul J. LeBlanc is President of Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU).

Since 2003, under Paul’s leadership, SNHU has grown from 2,800 students to over 135,000 learners and is the largest nonprofit provider of online higher education in the country. Their story of transformation will literally blow your mind. When he arrived at SNHU, Paul recalls they had two problems: lack of endowment and lack of status. How does an educational institution thrive under those circumstances?

The university was #12 on Fast Company magazine’s “World’s Fifty Most Innovative Companies” list and was the only university included. Forbes Magazine has listed him as one of its 15 “Classroom Revolutionaries” and one of the “most influential people in higher education.” Washington Monthly named him one of America’s ten most innovative university presidents.
