Jack Scott, scholar in residence in Claremont Graduate University's School of Educational Studies and chancellor of the California Community Colleges from 2009-2012, will deliver this year's 29th Annual Howard R. Bowen Lecture on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
His talk will focus on how California's higher education system went from a world leader to one of the country's most challenged over the span of 40 years. This will not be another lamentation; Scott promises to provide thoughts on how the state can reclaim its once globally envied system.
For the past three years, Scott led the state's 112 community colleges through sweeping reforms. Prior to assuming the chancellor's position, he served in the California State Senate (2000-2008) and as president of Pasadena City College (1987-95) and Cypress College (1978-87).
Scott holds a PhD in history from Claremont Graduate University and a masters of divinity from Yale University.
The Bowen Lecture is an annual fall lectureship on higher education delivered by leading scholars and practitioners in the field.
The lecture will begin at 7 pm in Albrecht Auditorium, 925 N. Dartmouth Ave. in Claremont. It is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and first-come, first served.
