Charles E. Carpenter Lecture & Conference Endowment
Established in 2004, the Charles E. Carpenter Lecture and Conference Endowment supports advances in professional development for community college leaders. Held each spring on the Oregon State University campus, the Carpenter Lecture features a nationally known speaker on a topic of importance to community colleges. In addition to current students in the community college leadership doctoral program, attendees include northwest community college leaders and members of the OSU community. Moving into its ninth year, the Carpenter Event has become a premier professional development event for community college leaders and has significantly advanced Oregon State University’s work in community college leadership.
