Description Born in Kerrville, Texas in August 1931, Professor Brooks received his B.A. and M.A. degrees at the University of Texas, and his Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University in 1960. He joined the faculty of Colorado College's Political Science Department in the fall of 1960, was promoted to Assistant Professor in 1961, to Associate Professor in 1964, and to Full Professor in 1970. Brooks was the chief architect of Colorado College's Block Plan, which went into effect in the fall of 1970. From 1979 through 1987, he served as Dean of the College, and from 1991 to 1993 as Director of Strategic Planning. His principal interests in public policy and in curricular and managerial reform in higher education led him to international consultancies in Africa and at the Universidad de Puebla, Mexico.
