New national commission to help reshape the future of community colleges

Posted on July 24, 2011

Dana Center director Uri Treisman is a member of the newly formed 21st-Century Commission on the Future of Community Colleges.

The commission was appointed by the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) and comprises 36 individuals who represent a broad array of constituencies and expertise from education, business, policy and communications. The group will work to examine the challenges and opportunities confronting the nation's largest and fastest growing higher education sector.

Two of Uri's University of Texas at Austin colleagues are also serving on the commission: Kay McClenney, who will co-chair the commission, and John E. Roueche.
