The 2017 Opening Address was led by
Dr. Mike Flores, President of Palo Alto College, one of the Alamo Colleges in San Antonio. Dr. Flores serves as an Achieving the Dream Data Coach and has led many new initiatives since becoming president of Palo Alto College in 2012. Dr. Flores will guide the Convening and inspire participants to share effective strategies and evidence based research for evaluating programs and initiatives that support minority student success and will moderate a panel of college presidents from minority serving institutions.
The 2016 conference focused on using existing research evidence to develop more robust methods for determining the success of minority-serving programs. With these improved methods, college and university representatives can return to their respective institutions to introduce new initiatives, obtain funding and effect positive change.
