Cecil Lytle is a world-renowned pianist at home in both classical music and jazz, but his impact spans far beyond the keyboard. As a former professor and chair of the UC San Diego music department, he taught classical music and black music history. He served for 17 years as provost of UC San Diego’s Thurgood Marshall College, shaping what was formerly known as “Third College” into a college that celebrates diversity, social justice, and public service.
