4/16/18: Bob Fisher, President, Belmont University
The first Earth Day celebration was on April 22, 1970, just a couple of years after the musical “Hair” announced “this is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius”. How are we doing on a global scale and what can we do as individuals and as leaders of organizations to make sure that this is not actually the “Age of Anthropocene” leading to “The Sixth Extinction” (Elizabeth Kolbert)?
Prior to his appointment at Belmont in April of 2000, Bob Fisher was vice president for academic affairs at Arkansas State University and had previously served as dean of the school of business at Henderson State University.
Bob Fisher joined our Rotary Club in 2000 and has served the community of Nashville in various roles including chair of the Greater Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, chair of the board of the Pencil Foundation, co-chair of the Mayor’s Task Force on Public Education and as a member of the board for non-profits such as the Nashville Public Education Foundation, Alignment Nashville, Cumberland Region Tomorrow, United Way, Nashville Symphony, Country Music Hall of Fame, and others.
