In it, Hrabowski says, “I don’t care how smart you are, nothing takes the place of hard work.”
Hrabowski has been in the national spotlight numerous times over the past few years.
He recently received an academic leadership award from the Carnegie Corp. that came with a $500,000 grant. He is using the money to start the Freeman A. Hrabowski Fund for Academic Innovation, which will support creative endeavors in teaching and entrepreneurship on campus.
And in 2009, he was named one of America’s 10 best college presidents by Time magazine.
