Note: Paige Mulhollan was asked to give remarks at a plenary session of the COPC conference because of his strong support in rewarding professional service when he served as the Provost of Arizona State University (1978-1985) and as President of Wright State University (1985-1994). Specifically, Dr. Mulhollan spoke about university institutionalization of the COPC type of work. However. we also wish to note that he was a key academic administrator/leader responsible for creating the metropolitan universities movement and founded, along with Ernest Lynton and Charles Hathaway, the Metropolitan Universities journal.
