Jeb Bush was the 43rd governor of Florida (1998-2007). He is the son of the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, and brother of the 43rd President, George W. Bush. Before his terms as governor, Bush started The Foundation For Florida’s Future, a think tank meant to influence public policy at the grassroots level. As governor, Bush worked to improve Florida’s education system, protect its environment, and boost its economy. He now heads the Foundation for Excellence in Education, and his ideas on education reform are garnering national interest.

Bush’s appearance coincides with the Annual Celebration of Excellence by Students (ACES) Symposium and is co-sponsored by the Office of the President, College of Liberal Arts, College of Education and Health Professions, School of Urban and Public Affairs and the Office of Graduate Studies.
