Interview Summary

In this interview, A.D. Albright discusses Harry Snyder's role as head of the Kentucky Council on Higher Education. Albright explains that certain members turned against Snyder. Albright also provides some details about his move to Northern Kentucky University, and states that his reasons for going to Northern included the need for higher education in that area, strong support from the board and the fact that the institution was new and that there was much that could be done. He talks about making changes at NKU and setting up planning groups. Albright explains that there was an attempt to create "clusters" of disciplines rather than schools, but that this was not implemented. Albright describes setting up an honors program at NKU and talks about how he helped out Thomas More College, a small Catholic liberal arts college in northern Kentucky, in their search for a new president.
