Executives in residence join BGSU

Bowling Green State University will welcome three executives in residence starting this semester as part of the University’s executive-in-residence program, which brings thought leaders and industry experts to campus to enrich student learning, aid in faculty development and engage with alumni.

Two of the executives in residence are alumni; all three bring expertise based on successful careers in their fields:

  • Jay Crawford ’87, former ESPN sportscaster
  • Dan Kleman ’67, former Tallahassee city manager
  • Patrick Love, Ph.D., former vice president for student affairs and higher education consultant.

Crawford is a seasoned broadcast journalist who is a household name in the sports industry. From anchoring SportsCenter to calling the Little League World Series, he has captivated audiences throughout his career. Crawford will be working with faculty and students in the School of Media and Communication, in Sport Management, and with student-athletes.

Kleman has dedicated his professional life to being a public servant and ensuring his communities implement best practices. From Dayton to Tallahassee, his management of urban planning and fiscal strategy will serve as a model for years to come. Klemen will be working with students and faculty through the Center for Community and Civic Engagement, the Career Center, the Master of Public Administration program and the Center for Regional and Economic Development.

Love is known for his experience in student development in higher education. As a practitioner, he has assisted many universities in student affairs and specifically has focused on leadership management and transformation. Love will be engaging students and faculty in the graduate program in Higher Education and Student Affairs.

More information about ways you can become involved and learn from these outstanding leaders will be shared in the coming weeks.
