Description

Lighthouse in a Storm: Shining a Beam on Student Success

A financial, political and cultural storm is swirling around higher education today. Under pressure to increase graduation rates, reduce remediation, and limit student loan debt, colleges across the country analyze data, conduct research and attempt a multitude of strategies to achieve greater rates of “student success”. But what does that term constitute, especially in the English classroom?

As community college educators, as we negotiate the always-evolving definition of success, we have both the opportunity and challenge of helping students to achieve their goals, whatever they may be: continuing their education, landing a good job, or growing and developing in a variety of ways.

In exploring our theme, “Lighthouse in a Storm: Shining a Beam on Student Success,” we look forward to sharing pedagogical, creative, and analytical ideas from community colleges across the Northeast region. Join us in Portland to discuss this important topic and learn from colleagues who face similar challenges.
