Martha J. Kanter, Distinguished Visiting Professor of Higher Education and Senior Fellow at New York University (former Chancellor of Foothill-DeAnza CCD and Under Secretary of Education for the US Dept of Education) will be the third keynote speaker at the Online Teaching Conference 2014, June 20-21, at the Town and Country Resort & Conference Center in San Diego, California.
Kanter was nominated by President Barack Obama on April 29, 2009, to be the Under Secretary of Education and was confirmed by the Senate on June 19, 2009. Kanter holds a doctorate in organization and leadership from the University of San Francisco. Her dissertation addressed demographic, institutional and assessment factors affecting access to higher education for underrepresented students in California's community colleges. In 1994, she opened the first Advanced Technology Center in California's community college system, and promoted local and state policies to advance Foothill-De Anza's legacy of excellence and opportunity for California's expanding and increasingly diverse student population. She received her master's degree in education with a concentration in clinical psychology and public practice from Harvard University, and a bachelor's degree in sociology from Brandeis University.
