Goucher College and the Greater Baltimore Committee present a monthly speaker series featuring top government officials and political leaders in state and federal government, as well as business executives.

Governor Lawrence J. Hogan, Jr. was sworn in as the 62nd Governor of the State of Maryland on January 21, 2015.

In his first inaugural address, Governor Hogan reminded citizens of Maryland’s history as a state of middle temperament and pledged to advance the best ideas, regardless of which side of the political aisle they come from. He is recognized nationally as a strong, independent leader who consistently delivers real results and achieves common sense, bipartisan solutions.

After being elected by his fellow governors, Governor Hogan recently completed a successful term as chairman of the National Governors Association, and he consistently maintains one of the highest job approval ratings in the country.

Dr. David Wilson, the 10th President of Morgan State University, has more than 30 years of experience in higher education administration.

The university’s highlights under Dr. Wilson’s leadership include the continuation of Morgan’s status as the No. 1 HBCU in production of Fulbright scholars and grantees, with 149 awarded in 44 countries around the world; and the elevation of Morgan from a moderate research classification of R3 to an elevated classification of R2, a status reserved for doctoral universities with high research activity.

His career includes serving at Jackson State University, before joining Virginia Tech’s Housing and Residence Life, and later the Office of the Dean of Students.
