Robert F. Arnove, Chancellor's Professor Emeritus at Indiana University-Bloomington, is a leading scholar of comparative and international education.

His interest in education and social change and his commitment to combining scholarship with public service have led him to be a teacher union president, a candidate for the U.S. Congress with Barry Commoner's Citizens Party, and the president of an experimental theater company.
