"You can't do anything important in public higher education without a partnership, a close partnership, with the leadership of state government, and frankly a partnership with the philanthropic community," said James Milliken, a longtime higher education administrator, who will take the reins of the 14-institution UT System on Sept. "It is one of the essential roles of the job," he said.
"I've been successful at that in other places; I certainly hope that I'm successful at it in Texas." The months-long search to find the UT's System's next chancellor officially ended Monday, when regents unanimously tapped Milliken three weeks after naming him the sole finalist for the post.
This video collection highlights and describes some approaches to the "Flipped" classroom in use by faculty at the University of Texas at Austin.

Milliken, whose career in higher education spans 30 years and three states, is no stranger to the political nature of the chancellor position — in fact, he appeared to be embroiled in politics at CUNY, a New York City-based system that receives that bulk of its funding from the state.During his tenure there, Milliken faced major turnover on the system’s governing board, a spending scandal at the system’s flagship, and a report questioning the financial controls in place at CUNY, which city council members suggested was used by the governor to politicize the system.
