Since his arrival at Lewis & Clark, President Barry Glassner has been strengthening local ties and building new connections around the globe. He is a national thought leader on issues in higher education.
Glassner’s commentary has recently appeared in the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as numerous broadcast outlets. He often writes in partnership with Morton Schapiro, president of Northwestern University. A professor of sociology, Glassner is the author of a number of books—including the best-selling The Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things.
Here are links to a selection of President Glassner’s commentary over the past few years.
- The Right Reasons to Pick a College (Los Angeles Times)
- The Uses of Ignorance (Chronicle of Higher Education)
- Leadership Tips for College Presidents and CEOs (Wall Street Journal)
- Diversity on Campus Sparks Protest? It’s a Sign of Progress (Los Angeles Times)
President Glassner is an elected member of the board of directors of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, a position that gives Lewis & Clark a greater voice in policy and legislative priorities for private higher education. And last year Glassner joined a group of college presidents, student leaders, and heads of leading environmental organizations in a White House roundtable conversation on sustainability. The meeting was part of the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.
