I apppreciate all the support from my colleagues and the atttendance of the students to Rob's presentations. I felt Rob could bring a critical message to students, faculty, and staff that there are new tools, new opportunities, and a need for passion in what we do.

Rob was outstanding in all presentations and the students, faculty, staff, and the Emporia community all embraced his insight and energy.

I was thrilled with his contribution to our knowledge experience and excited that we have a new vision with which to work.
