WMK 2-20122(New Orleans) – Dr. Walter M. Kimbrough, president of Dillard University will be interviewed on the Melissa Harris-Perry Show this Sunday, Dec. 8 during the 11 a.m. to Noon. Kimbrough will be discussing Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hip Hop, sex, and women.

Appointed as Dillard’s president in July, 2012, Kimbrough fosters a forward-thinking, student-focused campus culture and Kimbrough is one of the most dynamic figures in higher education today. Frequently called upon to provide his thoughts on the value of HBCUs, Greek fraternities, and current trends in education, Kimbrough recently gave an insightful statement during the U.S. Department of Education’s forum on college affordability and a proposed new rating system for higher education at Louisiana State University (LSU) in Baton Rouge.

During the forum, he pointed out that the rising cost of operations for security, technology, insurance and health care all impact the cost of education. Kimbrough also noted that the Parent Plus Loan fiasco has had a significant financial impact on students’ ability to continue in college. He compared the cost of incarceration with the cost of education stating that Louisiana is the “incarceration capital of the United States which itself is the incarceration capital of the world.” “We spend over $31,000 per inmate annually,” Kimbrough said. “If that were applied to Pell grants that would give every Louisiana Pell Grant recipient almost three times as much as they receive now.”

Kimbrough is currently participating in a special Twitter series #NPRBlacksinTech hosted by NPR’s Tell Me More show to engage the digital public in conversations with black innovators, scientists and tech thinkers. He participated in a roundtable on the show hosted by Michel Martin prior to launching the Twitter series which runs Dec. 2-20, 2013. He now has nearly 8,000 twitter followers as the Hip-Hop Prez.
