OCLCA 2021 Virtual Summer Conference

Thursday, June 17, 2021 

From Surviving to Thriving 

Featuring our keynote speaker, John N. Gardner.

John Gardner is universally regarded throughout the national and international higher education community as the initiator and leader of an educational reform movement, spanning more than four decades, to improve the retention and graduation rates of college and university students.

His work has focused especially on two critical student transitions during the undergraduate years: the first-year experience and the senior-year experience. Gardner is the founder of two higher education research and professional development educational centers, the University of South Carolina’s  National Resource Center on The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition and the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education. (https://www.jngi.org/board-of-directors
