College Scholars

JCCC's college scholars program showcases faculty excellence in research fields that go beyond the classroom to make scholarly contributions to knowledge within the professor's academic discipline.


The college scholars deliver two presentations. One is an evening lecture in which the topic is tailored for a general audience. The other is a daytime presentation tailored for students, faculty and staff. Both presentations deliver information or research-in-progress beyond the normal pedagogical content of a JCCC course. In addition, the scholars either visit two classes as an invited guest or lead a faculty seminar/colloquium in consultation with staff and organizational development.
