Leveraging the Transformative Power of Human Connections for Faculty and Student Success

Teaching and learning can be lonely endeavors, yet research has long pointed to the positive impact of relationships on many of our academic and personal aspirations, including our individual and collective well-being. This talk will highlight some of the reasons meaningful, trusting connections matter so much. It will also encourage faculty to help students understand the value of a relationship-rich college education -- and to help students develop a relationship-building toolkit. 

About the Speaker:

Dr. Isis Artze-Vega serves as college provost and vice president for academic affairs at Valencia College in Central Florida, a multi-campus institution that serves about 70,000 students annually and has long been regarded one of the nation’s best community colleges.
