    Dr. Curtis L. Ivery has been Chancellor of Wayne County Community College District since 1995. The multi-campus, culturally diverse District in metropolitan Detroit serves thousands of students in Wayne County, and is a focal point for community issues and solutions.

    The author of several books and hundreds of articles on urban affairs and education, Dr. Ivery continues his quest to strengthen communities by rebuilding the family unit and the values that create and hold them together.
