JORGE HADDOCK, the current and 20th President of the U of Puerto Rico.  Dr. Haddock, a native of Caguas, PR, career in academia, includes leadership roles at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the U of Richmond George Mason U, and the U of Massachusetts in Boston.  Author of more than a hundred publications over a wide spectrum of topics, he has been awarded more than $5 million dollars in research funding.

Dr. Haddock asked the audience how many had gone to UPR.  There was a large raising of hands. Following his talk, a lively Q & A period ensued.  Thanks to Dr. Norman Maldonado for bringing us this most enlightening program.
