2021 Dallas Herring Lecture

The Belk Center is pleased to officially announce the 2021 Dallas Herring Lecture which will take place virtually on Tuesday, November 16th from 1-3pm.

This year’s speaker will be Gregory Haile, J.D., President of Broward College (FL). The title of his lecture is Redefining Access: The Power of Proximity.

Community colleges were designed to magnify access to higher education, particularly for the most challenged among us. We were designed to remove geographic and economic barriers, and provide educational service to the entire community. While we have many successes to claim, we have not satisfied the objectives of our design. Via the power of proximity, breaking the confines of current access models, we have an opportunity to realize the basis for our existence. Gregory Haile reimagines higher education access through a collaborative, replicable, and disruptive model in his 2021 W. Dallas Herring Lecture.

Lambert, J.D., chancellor of Pima Community College (AZ), and Dr. Sunita “Sunny” Cooke, superintendent/president of MiraCosta Community College District (CA).
