Portrait of Leadership
"Who is this guy who has his name on this outstanding school?" Ambassador George Herbert Walker asked Webster University faculty and staff at the unveiling of his portrait at the Walker School of Business & Technology. "Is he smart as hell - an intellectual giant?" He says "no". We say if you measured passion for education in feet, Bert Walker would stand head and shoulders above us all. Experience the event.
Dethroning The King

Leading a Global Institution
"Universities were made to last forever and do things as they always
did," says Webster University provost Julian Schuster. "But we live in a time of exponential change so leading the traditional way usually will lead to traditional results." That's why, Schuster tells Dean and
Provost, leaders need to open their minds when opening their universities in other countries. Read Anticipate change to lead a global institution.
