Kamm Lecture in Higher Education

Reimagined Kamm Lecture – Coming Spring 2021

Keeping in the spirit of Dr. Kamm, the new format will feature a keynote speaker every three years. In the subsequent two years, working groups will focus on the impact and application of the keynote topic or issue previously addressed. As we plan for this new format, there will not be a Kamm Lecture in 2020. We look forward to sharing more information soon, including specific details for Kamm 2021.

The first Robert B. Kamm Distinguished Lecture in Higher Education was held in 1992, with the purpose of bringing private and public sector leaders together to discuss issues shaping the future of education, particularly higher education, in Oklahoma. Robert B. Kamm served in higher education as a teacher, counselor and administrator at OSU for more than 45 years, including service as president from 1966 to 1977. He was inducted in to the College of Education, Health and Aviation Hall of Fame in 2000 and served on the College's faculty. During his lengthy career, Dr. Kamm emphasized academic excellence and underscored the centrality of students, faculty and staff in the learning experience. Past Kamm Fellows and Speakers
