Conference Overview

This year's regional conference will feature plenary speaker Vincent Tinto, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at Syracuse University. Dr. Tinto has written extensively on student success in higher education, including his most recent book Completing College. Tinto's keynote address will discuss why students leave college and what educators are doing successfully to help them stay and complete college.  

In addition to our exciting plenary sessions, there will be breakout sessions on related topics, facilitated by Temple University Provost's Teaching Academy faculty, and a poster session on best teaching practices, featuring submissions from faculty around the region.
