Dr. Don Brown, commissioner of higher education for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, will speak at a noon luncheon Friday, Oct. 6, on the fifth floor of the Cashion Academic Center.

The luncheon is sponsored by the department of educational administration in Baylor's School of Education.

The state's higher education commissioner since 1997, Brown joined the coordinating board's staff in 1983 and served as assistant to the commissioner and assistant commissioner for special programs before being appointed deputy commissioner in 1988.

Brown was a member of the political science faculty at the University of California-Riverside for 12 years, teaching and researching the judicial system and public policy. In 1982-83, he was a visiting faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin.

A Kerrville native, Brown earned his bachelor's degree in government from UT-Austin in 1965. Following two years in the Navy, he began graduate work at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, from which he received his doctorate in political science in 1971.

Reservations for the luncheon, which cost $13.25, can be made by calling Lamona Martin in the School of Education at 710-3117.
