Prairie View A&M Senior Vice President of Business Affairs Corey Bradford assumed he was on track for a career in corporate America, but the reward of working in higher education was too great to deny. Bradford’s first professional role was in the budget office, in fact, and he worked into the CBO role from there. From continuing education to on-the-job experience in campus crisis management, Bradford shares his insights in growing into finance leadership, campus growth, and deep mission-level investment in the broader civic community economic development.
“I spend a good deal of my time trying to spur on private development within the community to help the overall quality of life for students, faculty, and staff.” Bradford’s example of public-private partnership is one from which we can all learn!!
