Keynote - Our Students Speak: Do We Listen?

Low student success rates. Unengaged students. Disappearing students. Half of community college students leaving by the end of the first year. We’re all frustrated, but what can we do to change those outcomes? What do our students tell us they need at the front door to help keep it from turning into a revolving door?

Our Keynote Speaker will be Arleen Arnsparger, Center for Community College Student Engagement Project Manager of the Initiative on Student Success, Student Success BY THE NUMBERS (SSBTN), and Strengthening the Role of Part-Time Faculty at the Center for Community College Student Engagement at The University of Texas at Austin. In her role leading the qualitative work of the Center, Arleen works with community colleges throughout the country, conducting focus groups and interviews with students to learn about their college experiences, interviewing presidents, and listening to faculty and staff. Arleen, along with Kay McClenney, is co-author of the book and producer of the companion video, Students Speak — Are We Listening? Starting Right in the Community College.
