Robert Davies

Murray State University

This holiday season, many people are looking forward to a bit of a break before heading into the new year.  But for Murray State University President Bob Davies, that break is tempered with the knowledge that January 2016 is a budget year for the Kentucky General Assembly.  This likely means a renewed debate over higher education funding in the Commonwealth.  Dr. Davies sits down with Todd Hatton to talk about what else is ahead for MSU in 2016 and what's been achieved in 2015.

Coming from the West, Dr. Robert O. "Bob" Davies assumes the presidency of Murray State University this July. Dr. Davies and his sister thought of themselves as "university brats" growing up. Kate Lochte speaks with Davies about his family and his experiences interviewing for his new job, from his office at EOU.
