Daryl G. Smith, senior research fellow and professor emerita of education and psychology at Claremont Graduate University, is the keynote speaker for the 2015 SCDC. Dr. Smith’s research, teaching and publications are in the areas of organizational implications of diversity, assessment and evaluation, leadership and change and governance.
Smith served as one of three Principals responsible for the evaluation of the James Irvine Foundation Campus Diversity Initiative, in collaboration with the Association of American Colleges.

Medical School, and served as part of two U.S. delegations to Ford Foundation tri-national
