Breuninger, Kim
After graduation from the University of Delaware in 1977 I began teaching. I have taught at every level from pre-K-graduate school. My primary content area was in the sciences including Biology, general science, anatomy and physiology, physical education and health. Following graduate school in exercise physiology I moved from the classroom and entered the rehabilitation field as director of exercise physiology and cardiac rehabilitation. My love of teaching called me back to the classroom but in the completely new field of educational technology. Although I loved my children I again grew frustrated with the speed at which instructional technology integration and the "learning sciences" was moving within the schools. As a result, I joined the Chester County Intermediate Unit as an Instructional Technology Specialist. My areas of expertise expanded to include the use of distance learning modes to enhance student learning. Our partnership with the MAGPI group at the University of Pennsylvania has enabled us to develop programs that reach to all corners of the world. I have presented at local, national and international conferences on the effective use of technology integration and future learning environments. I understand the constraints of our classroom environments, teacher responsibilities and appropriate use of technology to enhance learning and the necessity of building collaborative support at each level.

Cole, Greg
Principal Investigator, Global Ring Network for Advanced Applications Development (GLORIAD) Greg is the Principal Investigator of the NSF International Research Network Connections (IRNC) program establishing GLORIAD. Greg received both his bachelor''s and master''s degrees in Computer Science from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville where he had the good fortune of working with Dr. Michael Thomason on his research in the area of pattern recognition. His first international trip was with Dr. Thomason in 1986 to work with Erik Granum and Jens Gregor in Aalborg, Denmark and to present his research at a conference on pattern recognition there. After graduating in 1988, he was most fortunate to have the chance to work with Homer Fisher and Bill Snyder - directing the University of Tennessee''s Office of Research Services until 1995 when he directed the new Center for International Networking. In 1998, he received the NSF grant for the High Performance International Internet Services project (HPIIS). Under HPIIS, a high-performance link with Russia was implemented, first as MirNet, and in a later more advanced version, as NaukaNet. NaukaNet established the primary high performance Internet network between the US and Russian S&E communities in 1999 and led to an effective consortium of collaborating US and Russian science, education, and networking organizations. He moved the project to Washington, DC (as part of the University of Illinois National Center for Supercomputing Applications) in 2001, and by December of that year the project realized its goal of routing S&E traffic from across the whole of both US and Russia. This work was extended, via GLORIAD, to China in 2004 where it connects science institutions and facilities across the whole of China - and then to Korea, Canada and Netherlands in 2005 and in 2007 to the five Nordic Countries of NORDUnet. The new GLORIAD project began at The University of Tennessee at the UT-ORNL Joint Institute for Computational Sciences in Oak Ridge in the fall of 2004. In April 2008, the GLORIAD-US team moved its offices once again to the campus of The University of Tennessee. Greg has also co-directed (with Natasha Bulashova) the US-Russian Civic Networking Program (funded by the Ford Foundation and the Eurasia Foundation) and directed several other US-Russia network Infrastructure and community development programs funded by such Organizations as NATO, US Department of State, Eurasia Foundation, Sun Microsystems and others.

Cowen, Scott
Scott S. Cowen is Tulane University's 14th President. He also holds joint appointments as the Seymour S. Goodman Memorial Professor of Business in Tulane's A.B. Freeman School of Business and Professor of Economics in the School of Liberal Arts. President Cowen came to Tulane in 1998 from Case Western Reserve University where he was a member of the faculty for 23 years and Dean and Albert J. Weatherhead III Professor of Management at its Weatherhead School of Management for 14 years. He is the author of four books and over 100 academic and professional articles, essays and reviews and is the recipient of several national awards and honors. Since his arrival in 1998, Tulane University has more than doubled its undergraduate applications, experienced all-time highs in student enrollment and quality, doubled the level of total private giving to the university and received a record level of research awards. The university has implemented a number of innovative academic and research program initiatives and significantly increased its community outreach. In recognition of these efforts, Newsweek magazine listed Tulane University as one of the "hottest" schools in the U.S. In June 2003 President Cowen invited his fellow university leaders to join together in a national effort to reform intercollegiate athletics and ensure that their sports programs are consistent with the values, missions and aspirations of their institutions. This effort included working to alter the Bowl Championship Series arrangement to minimize, if not eliminate, its adverse impact on Division I-A intercollegiate athletics, requesting that the NCAA adopt policies and procedures that support higher academic standards and asking the NCAA to reconsider the appropriateness and cost implications of Division I-A membership criteria. President Cowen has held several leadership positions in national academic and professional associations. He is a past board member of the American Council on Education, a past member of its Nominating Committee and Executive Committee and was Chair of the Planning Committee for its 2003 annual meeting. He is also a former board member of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, a former member of the NCAA board and its executive committee and past president of the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business. He is also a former chair of the Conference USA Board of Directors. Besides his achievements in the academic world, President Cowen also has extensive experience in business as a corporate director and consultant. He is a member of the Board of Directors of Newell Rubbermaid Inc., American Greetings Corporation, Jo-Ann Stores Inc. and Forest City Enterprises Inc. He has consulted with dozens of companies, from start-ups to Fortune 100 companies. In addition, he sits on several community boards, including the New Orleans Business Council, Committee For A Better New Orleans, Greater New Orleans Inc., and the Mayor's National Film Advisory Board. On March 17, 2005, President Cowen announced the public launch of "Promise and Distinction: The Campaign for Tulane." With a goal of raising $700 million by 2008, the campaign is the largest university fundraising effort in the history of Louisiana. In August of 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans, flooded half of Tulane's uptown campus and all of its downtown Health Sciences Center and dispersed its faculty and staff around the country for an entire semester. Under President Cowen's leadership the campus was repaired and a remarkable 87 percent of its students returned for classes in January of 2006. On December 8, 2005 the Board of Tulane approved President Cowen's Renewal Plan, a sweeping effort that strengthens and focuses the university's academic mission while strategically addressing its current and future operations in the post-Katrina era. In response to Katrina, New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin appointed President Cowen to the city's Bring New Orleans Back Commission and charged him with leading a committee to reform and rebuild the city's failing public school system. President Cowen has devoted his days and nights to these monumental tasks and has already had impressive results. As part of this effort, Tulane has chartered a K-12 school in New Orleans and created an Institute for Public Education Initiatives to support the transformation of public education in New Orleans. In addition, President Cowen also serves as a Commissioner of the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority, which plays a major role in the rebuilding of Orleans Parish in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

At the Center, she was responsible for building and managing the corporate partnership program. One of her enduring memories of that exciting and productive association was when Ken Wilson, Ken King, and Bill Schrader conceived NYSERNet and dedicated research networking was married to large-scale computing creating a new enabling technology for scientific research. After the Theory Center, Anne married her interest in science and technology management to a development career, focusing her energy on the creation of relationships between University scientists and engineers and corporate and federal funding agencies. She eventually became Associate Director of Corporate Relations for the University, an office that managed $32 million annually in support of Cornell’s researchers and educational programs. As a NYSERNet program manager, her energies are focused on increasing connections to the research backbone, managing the implementation of high-end commodity contracts, and identifying emerging opportunities for the application of this enabling technology.

Kernan, Joseph E.
Joe Kernan, the oldest of nine children, graduated from St. Joseph's High School in South Bend. He was a catcher on the baseball team at the University of Notre Dame, and graduated from there in 1968 with a degree in Government.

Kernan entered the United States Navy in 1969 and served as a Naval Flight Officer aboard the U.S.S. Kitty Hawk. In May of 1972, Kernan was shot down by the enemy while on a reconnaissance mission over North Vietnam. He was held as a prisoner of war for nearly 11 months. Kernan was repatriated in 1973 and continued on active duty with the Navy until December of 1974. For his service, Kernan received numerous awards, including the Navy commendation Medal, two Purple Hearts and the Distinguished Flying Cross.

After completing his Naval service, Kernan worked for Procter and Gamblein Cincinnati in 1975. He then returned to South Bend, where he worked for both the Schwarz Paper Company and the MacWilliams Corporation. He was South Bend's city controller from 1980 to 1984. Joe Kernan was elected mayor of South Bend in 1987, 1991 and again in 1995, when he won with more than 82% of the vote. He is the longest serving mayor in the city's history.

In 1996, Frank O'Bannon and Joe Kernan were elected as Governor and Lt. Governor in Indiana government. The O'Bannon-Kernan team was elected for a second term in 2000. Governor Kernan became governor in September 2003 upon the death of then-Governor Frank O'Bannon. As lieutenant governor of Indiana, Kernan served as the president of the Indiana Senate, the director of the Indiana Department of Commerce and as the commissioner of Agriculture.

Among Governor Kernan's accomplishments:

  • Agricultural Crisis Working Group. In 1998, Kernan pulled together support for farmers who were struggling through some of darkest times in the agricultural industry's history. What began as simply the Pork Crisis Working Group is now a bipartisan group of men and women who are on call to assist whenever necessary.
  • Insurance Industry Working Group. Also in 1998, the lieutenant governor created and led a group whose charge was to improve the economic climate for the state's already strong insurance industry. Some of its successes include a reduction in the insurance premium tax rate, a new demutualization law and a new associate's degree through Ivy Tech State College that focuses on the insurance industry.
  • Honorary Degree. The lieutenant governor was honored by his alma mater when he was chosen as the commencement speaker for the University of Notre Dame's graduation ceremonies. He was awarded an honorary doctorate during the 1998 event.
  • Reaching Out to Fellow Veterans. Lt. Governor Kernan launched the Veterans Outreach Initiative in 1999 - an effort to encourage veterans to take advantage of the state and federal benefits that they have earned by serving our country. Thousands of veterans have received information from the lieutenant governor, outlining their benefits and how to go about accessing them.
  • 21st Century Research and Technology Fund. Kernan was chairman of the fund, established in 1999, which supports new business development in the high-tech, high-paying sectors of life sciences and computer technology. In three rounds of funding, more than $49 million in grants have been awarded to 43 academic-private sector partnerships, leveraging $95 million in matching funds.
  • International Trade. Under Kernan's direction, the state stepped up its international presence. In 2001, despite the tragic events of September 11th, Indiana recorded its second highest export numbers in history. More than $14 billion worth of Hoosier goods were shipped outside the state. The state has also added six countries to the list of locations where it has a foreign trade office or partnership, bringing the total to 14 worldwide.
  • Economic Development. Through the Indiana Department of Commerce and the state's other economic development related agencies, 400,000 Hoosier jobs have been positively impacted during Kernan's tenure. Commerce alone has helped bring 193 new companies into the state and has assisted in the expansion of 2,147 existing businesses. Major successes include expansions at Eli Lilly and Co., Dow AgroSciences and Interactive Intelligence in Indianapolis, Toyota Motor Manufacturing in Princeton, Subaru-Isuzu in Lafayette and AM General in South Bend.
  • Tax Restructuring. In October 2001, Lt. Governor Kernan unveiled the administration's comprehensive plan to overhaul the state's tax system. The plan, which he developed with a group of bi-partisan fiscal and tax experts, was an effort to cut property taxes and create a tax system that would not only reserve the state's traditional manufacturing and agricultural base, but also grow the technology jobs of the future. In June 2002, the Indiana General Assembly passed a tax reform plan based on the lieutenant governor's work, encompassing all of his original goals. In addition, the plan included budgetary measures that ensured continued education funding vital to the state's future.

  • Joe and his wife, Maggie, were married in 1974. They have a home in South Bend, where Maggie works on planning projects for 1st Source Bank.A Purdue University graduate who is active in community service, Maggie has been mentoring a child through a South Bend Community Schools program since 1994.

    Lambert, H. David
    H. David Lambert has more than 30 years of distinguished experience in the advanced research and education networking and information technology fields. Mr. Lambert has held a variety of leadership positions at Georgetown University, Cornell University, and Indiana University and has served on numerous higher education technology associations and advisory boards. He became president and chief executive officer of Internet2 on July 7, 2010. Internet2 Leadership President Lambert works with the Internet2 Board of Trustees and the Executive Leadership Team to further establish Internet2 as the partner of choice for the U.S. and international research and education community; seeking to enhance research collaboration, network services and infrastructure throughout the world. Under his leadership, Internet2 is building on the organization's membership foundations to establish a unique set of unified capabilities that empower innovation for U.S. and global research and education institutions by leveraging the organization's core principles of innovation, transformation, and community. Mr. Lambert also guides Internet2 and its members to engage global research and education network leaders, to build broader consensus on strategic programs and services in areas critical to Internet2 members and partners. His ability to bring the research and education community and industry together has yielded extraordinary results in a very short period of time. Lambert's first challenge included leading and completing in April 2013 the world's first, 100 Gigabit per second transcontinental research and education network, with the U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Sciences Network (ESnet). In July 2010, the Commerce Department awarded more than $62.5 million in federal stimulus funding through the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program to Internet2 to build Internet2's new network that links regional networks across the nation. While building Internet2's new 100G network, Lambert collaborated with industry and other executives to launch the Internet2 Innovation Platform Initiative, which provides new solutions, such as software-defined networking and high-performance scientific applications. This technology accelerates collaborative scientific research and transforms university business services to strengthen the nation's position as a global research and education leader. To complement the new network, President Lambert announced, in Fall 2011, partnerships with 13 campuses and several vendors to deliver new Internet2 NET+ Services including cloud computing and expanded infrastructure services. NET+ Services has grown to include more than 30 services and more than 100 universities, representing tens of millions of dollars in service value. As an outgrowth of this vision, Internet2 is developing the NET+ Regional Partners Program, NET+ Global Partners Program and the NET+ Research and Scholarly Content efforts to benefit additional higher education, K-12, libraries, museums and other community anchor institutions. In October 2012, Internet2 announced a three-year plan to enhance research and collaboration between U.S. and Chinese researchers, scientists, educators and higher education leaders to address global infrastructure needs and foster the continuing exchange of ideas to produce growth and innovation. Internet2, in partnership with New York University, Duke University, University of Chicago and Florida International University, also established in May 2013, an advanced data and communications network facility in Singapore. The new facility supports member campuses in the Asia-Pacific region. Since coming to Internet2, President Lambert has formed strategic industry partnerships and active collaborations with a wide-variety of companies, including: Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Box, Ciena, Dell, Juniper, McGraw-Hill, Microsoft, and many others. These partnerships are designed to create new opportunities to innovate and transform Internet2 member and non-member campuses and directly benefit faculty, staff and students. To further assist Internet2 members, higher education and industry, Lambert opened a West Coast office in the San Francisco Bay Area. This office allows Internet2 leaders and staff better access to technology leaders, innovative networking companies and our western membership. The West Coast presence seeks to influence the direction technology companies take in areas ranging from e-textbooks to very large-scale data scientific research. President Lambert values his work with the research and education community and industry. He looks forward to building on these developments expanding our focus on advanced network and cloud services; global, national and regional collaborations; and industry and research partnerships that benefit Internet2 members and the global research and education community. Professional, Academic and Personal Prior to joining Internet2, Mr. Lambert was the first Vice President for Information Services and Chief Information Officer at Georgetown University, from 1998 to 2010. He was recruited to Georgetown University from Cornell University, where he served as Vice President for Information Technology from 1994 through 1997 and as Director of Network Services from 1989 through 1993. Before joining Cornell in 1989, Lambert held several technical and leadership positions at Indiana University, Bloomington. Lambert has held or holds leadership and advisory positions in numerous higher education technology associations and boards. His academic background includes a B.A. in Political Science from West Virginia University and doctoral studies in Political Science at Indiana University, Bloomington. He also holds the Professional Manager Certificate from Indiana University's Graduate School of Business. He and his wife, Carol, live in Bethesda, Maryland.
