CC’s Past Presidents
Over the past few weeks, I have had the great pleasure of meeting two of my predecessors, our 10th President Gresham Riley and our 11th President Kathryn Mohrman. Both are active and continuing to make important contributions in higher education. Gresham and Kathryn speak very fondly of their time at CC and the college.
Kathryn is now serving as the Director of the University Design Consortium and Professor of Practice at Arizona State University. The Consortium is “a boundary-spanning organization founded by Arizona State University (USA) and Sichuan University (China) to challenge public universities around the world to develop innovative strategies to address the complex issues of the 21st century.” Kathryn travels to China regularly for this exciting work and is an active scholar, publishing regularly on education in China. You can check out a video of Kathryn addressing an education conference in Hanoi at http://universitydesign.asu.edu/.
Gresham and his wife Pam now live in Old City in Philadelphia and have enjoyed team teaching at the University of Pennsylvania. Gresham holds a faculty appointment in the Philosophy Department at Penn and is currently engaged in an extended research project on the topic of evil.
I hope that Gresham, Kathryn and Dick Celeste (my immediate predecessor, our 12th president) will all be able to celebrate the history of the college at my upcoming inauguration!
