After only one day on the job, Ball State President Jo Ann M. Gora sent Ken Holland packing — literally — as he accompanied the president and other Ball State officials last month on a three-week trip to China and Korea in hopes of increasing its international presence and student enrollment.
Having logged more frequent flyer miles than hours in the office, Holland is no doubt still settling into his role as dean of Ball State's Rinker Center for International Programs, but he has certainly hit the ground running.
Before coming Ball State, Holland was the associate provost for international programs at Kansas State, where he played a key role in building up its international programs.
Watch a video of Holland as he shares his vision for the Rinker Center as outlined in the "Education Redefined: Strategic Plan 2007-2012."
