30th Annual Teaching Academic Survival and Success Conference

Sun, 04/07/2019 - Wed, 04/10/2019

The TASS Conference was the creation of Dr. James Harter and Dr. Terry Bullock at the University of Cincinnati. They felt there was a need for college educators working with at-risk students to have a forum for sharing their experiences, successes, and insights in working with these students. With help and encouragement from David Hartleb, the former Dean at the University of Cincinnati, and Professor Harry Prats, University of Cincinnati, we were able to secure funds to initiate the conference. David Hartleb, now the retired President of Northern Essex Community College (NECC), once again championed the cause of TASS through NECC. As a result of his contributions and those of retired Dean David Kelley (NECC), who joined the TASS Executive Board in 1998, Dr. Victoria Appatova from the University of Cincinnati, who joined the Executive Board in 2004, and our Advisory Board, the TASS Conference has continued to grow and flourish. We thank the hundreds of educators who have shared their wisdom over the years and provided strategies to help make the dreams of college students come true.
