This is Part 2 of 2 in the Community College Leadership Series: Scaling Student Success Through Technology & Innovation. Part 1 can be accessed here.

Access and student success are the hallmarks of American community colleges. They also present ongoing challenges. Meeting each institution’s goals in a time of pandemic and budget shortfalls will require bold new leadership approaches.

In Part 2 of our Community College Leadership Series we sit with Dr. Jim Catanzaro, community college president for nearly four decades and Director of the Higher Education Research and Development Institute for the South, as he offers perspectives from 20,000 feet up and from inside the C-Suite.

The discussion unpacks the strategic imperatives for community colleges and highlights the innovative technologies being used across the country.

  • Dr. Jim Catanzaro, Executive Director, HERDI - South
  • Damon Vangelis, Founder & CEO, Ocelot
  • Special contributions from Mark Butland (Kirkwood Community College), Michael Bennett (St. Petersburg College), and Melissa Curtis (Austin Community College)
