SPONSORED BY LUCK STONE

We are excited to have Dr. Bob Holsworth as the speaker for our inaugural event of the Powhatan Forum. The Forum will be held the weekend prior to the 2017 Virginia Gubernatorial Election. His extensive background in political science, higher education, and private enterprise will provide great insight to the current political landscape.

Bob is the team lead for higher education and civic engagement projects for Decide Smart.
Prior to joining the firm, he was the Founding Director of the Center for Public Policy and the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs at Virginia Commonwealth University. He also served as Dean of the College of Humanities and Sciences – the largest unit of the 31,000-student university.

Bob has occupied key positions in a number of major governmental initiatives. He was the Executive Director of the Governor’s Commission on Efficiency and Effectiveness. He has been the Director of the Virginia Executive Institute and Co-Staff Director of the Commission on the Future of Virginia’s Urban Areas, a gubernatorial commission that examined how Virginia’s urban areas could become flourishing parts of regional economies.
Bob serves on the Board of Visitors of Virginia Commonwealth University. He received his BA from Seton Hall University and his PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
