Dr. Clyne G. H. Namuo Appointed to Association of Community College Trustees Advisory Committee
Dr. Clyne G. H. Namuo, 10th president of Joliet Junior College, was recently appointed to the Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) Advisory Committee of Presidents.
The ACCT advisory committee of presidents was established to ensure that chief executives have a voice in recommending and evaluating educational programs offered by ACCT and is represented by four ACCT member community or technical college from each of the five regions. The ACCT represents about 6,500 elected and appointed trustees for more than 1,200 community, technical and junior college in the U.S. and beyond.
“This role represents a commitment to advancing the mission of JJC and all community colleges across the country,” said Namuo. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to influence and advise the ACCT alongside a group of likeminded professionals who feel as strongly as I do about the transformative educational experience community colleges provide.”
Namuo joined JJC in July 2022 as the institution’s 10th president. This appointment comes in addition to an already robust list of civic and professional appointments. He has set forth an aggressive agenda for JJC which includes; the 12x12x12 dual credit initiative, expansion of the College’s presence into neighboring Grundy County, support for first-generation students through the Namuo Family Scholarship and the Roots & Branches storytelling project.
Namuo holds a doctor of philosophy degree in higher education strategy from the University of Arizona’s Center for the Study of Higher Education, a master’s degree in information systems from San Diego State University, and a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Hawaii.
Namuo will serve a two-year term on this committee beginning Dec. 31, 2023.
