Dr. Robert Witt


TOPIC:  Transformational Leadership 


FOCUS:  When you are faced with a situation where an organization must change dramatically - when it must literally be transformed into an essentially new organization, how do you approach the task?



On March 5, 2012, Dr. Robert E. Witt was unanimously elected Chancellor of The University of Alabama System, which is Alabama’s largest higher education enterprise.


Prior to becoming UA System Chancellor, Dr. Witt was President of The University of Alabama, assuming that post in 2003. During his nine-year tenure he was responsible for successfully undertaking an ambitious plan for academic growth and achievement that has positioned UA as one of America’s fastest growing public universities.


Before being recruited to Alabama, Dr. Witt was President of the University of Texas at Arlington from 1995-2003. Robert Witt received his B.A. in economics from Bates College, his M.B.A. from the Tuck School at Dartmouth College, and his Ph.D. from Penn State University. In 2011 he was inducted into the Alabama Academy of Honor, comprised of 100 living Alabamians elected on the basis of service to the state.

Dr. Witt and his wife Sandee have five grandchildren.
