Thomas Brown and Associates

"Increasing student Engagement and success: it takes you!" 

Tom will address common questions about the factors contributing to student success. He will identify many of the reasons students leave college, challenge some of the common myths and misconceptions about attrition, and share evidence that what happens to students after they enroll is often more important than their pre-enrollment attributes and experiences.

This presentation will illustrate that increased persistence is the by-product of a campus environment which combines high quality teaching, comprehensive student services, and an effective academic advising program.

On such campuses, everyone recognizes that they have the power to make an individual difference—whether they are department heads, classroom teachers, counselors, advisors, coaches, administrative assistants, or receptionists.

"The Hidden Story of Decision Making: Unconscious Bias in the Workplace"

This workshop will explore how our hidden brain works, often in opposition to our conscious beliefs and ideals. We will also look at how these unconscious patterns of behavior can impact the workplace and what we can do about it.
