Academic Senate for California Community Colleges Bestows Professor Greg Gilbert with Senator Emeritus Status

    December 4, 2012

    At the 44th Fall Session of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) on November 9, 2012 a resolution was passed to honor Professor Greg Gilbert with the status of Senator Emeritus.  

    Gilbert, who has worked at CMC since August 1995 and retired in 2011, has shown over these many years of service, his dedication to higher education.  Gilbert was also awarded Emeritus status form the college earlier in the year at a Copper Mountain College Board of Trustees meeting.


    The ASCCC has many requirements that must be met to receive such an honor.  Gilbert’s more than five years of compelling service to the state-wide Academic Senate includes: ASCCC Executive Committee member from 2003-07, two terms as Secretary, served as founding chair of first Accreditation Institute, authored letter opposing the federalization of higher education, brought several speakers to Plenary general session, founded CMC’s Academic Senate and served four terms as president and three as vice president and much more.

    The resolution states, “Greg Gilbert’s quiet, thoughtful, and profoundly passionate approach to examining issues, to guiding, leading, and mentoring others, and to ensuring a deep and respectful dialog on many complex issues is both inspiring and has set the bar for those who follow him”.

    Copper Mountain College’s Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and students are very proud and excited about the well-deserved honor bestowed upon Professor Greg Gilbert from the ASCCC.
