W. Dallas Herring was instrumental in the creation of the North Carolina Community College System. His work widened access to and democratized higher education for thousands of North Carolinians. NC State honors Herring’s legacy by hosting the annual Dallas Herring Lecture. It invites top community college leaders to speak on urgent and emerging topics, framing how to address the issues and proposing a path forward.
The 2018 Dallas Herring Lecture will be on Wednesday, November 28, 5.30-7.00pm, and occur at the Friday Institute (NC State’s Centennial Campus). Dr. Karen Stout, President & CEO of Achieving the Dream, will deliver this year’s Lecture. Further details and an RSVP are forthcoming.
