Keynote Address "Generation on a Tightrope: Implications for Community Colleges"
Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Diane Dean, Associate Professor for Higher Education Administration & Policy at Illinois State University. Her research applies organizational theory, social psychology, and policy analysis to address critical issues in college and university planning, policy, and governance. Dr. Dean is co-editor of Public Policy and Higher Education (2nd ed), a comprehensive work examining current policy issues in higher education and the postsecondary education policy-making process; and co-editor of the Women in Academe series, which includes multiple volumes on women college students, women in academic leadership, and gendered issues in faculty roles and work lives.
As co-author of the recently-published Generation on a Tightrope: A Portrait of Today’s College Students and director of the research underlying the book, Dr. Dean is currently examining sociological changes in today’s generation of undergraduate college students, the forces shaping their experiences, and the implications for postsecondary education policy, planning, classroom practices and the co-curriculum.
