2024 keynote speakers

Coming soon: keynote descriptions & details!

Khristian kemp-delisser, Ed.D.

Director of Campus Climate

Connecticut State Community College System

Wednesday, April 10, 11:30am

Campus climate need not only be measured on an institutional level by complex quantitative and qualitative annual surveys. How frequently are you the only one? Where on campus do you belong? When was the last time two or more student organizations collaborated? What is your school known for in the local community?

Join khristian (he/they) to explore how four simple questions like these can offer individual campus stakeholders a way to understand, measure, and shift the climate of their campus.

Heather adams, ed.d.

Director of Special Initiatives & Transfer Student Success Consultant

SOVA Solutions

Thursday, April 11, 11:30am

Transfer culture - what does this mean to your institution? Defined as a reflection of core values expressed structurally and individually, campus culture is key for our transfer students. What is expected of transfer students, staff, and faculty? What core values are important to transfer students?

Dr. Heather Adams joins us to discuss transfer climate and culture, the differences and confluences of these conceptual approaches, and the transformative power of developing a robust transfer culture on your campus.

Alyssa ratledge

Postsecondary Research Associate 


Friday, April 12, 9:00am

Across postsecondary education research, a clear pattern is emerging: the interventions with the greatest positive impacts on students’ retention and graduation rates are those that combine multiple supports into a single cohesive package and serve students throughout their academic careers. How can colleges use this research to support students’ retention, graduation, and transfer?

This keynote address will summarize the research evidence on these interventions, who has been served by them, what their most common components are, and how they might best be implemented. We’ll have a robust Q&A about what this might mean for colleges looking to implement for your unique student population.
