Bio

Bio
Jack Scott, chancellor of California Community Colleges, plans to retire on Sept. 1, capping a 58-year career in higher education and public service. He has served as head of the nation’s largest system of higher education since 2009. Scott, a powerful advocate for increased investment in higher education, has provided leadership that streamlined the transfer process from community colleges to the California State University with the new Associate Degree for Transfer program. He was also a driving force in helping to craft the recommendations of the California Community Colleges Board of Governors Student Success Task Force, which will lead to more students transferring to four-year institutions and earning certificates and degrees on time. Previously, Scott served in the California Legislature for 12 years as a state senator (2000-2008) and a member of the assembly. He served as chair of the Senate Committee on Education.
