Keynote Speaker – Dr. Rob Johnstone

Dr. Johnstone works to help 2-year and 4-year colleges create structures and processes that increase student completion, learning and labor market outcomes.  His unique & engaging approach to inquiry & improvement fuses the world of foundations, initiatives, and system-level policy changes with the ground-level work of college practitioners & college senior leaders.

He has worked on the ground with over 350 colleges around the country on initiatives such as the AACC Pathways Institutes, the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the California Guided Pathways Initiative, Jobs for the Future’s Student Success Centers in 14 states, Gates’ Completion by Design, Lumina’s Beyond Financial Aid, and directly with colleges on NCII’s two-year Agency, Attitude and Intensive Implementation (A2I2) cohort model. 

He served as a Director, Dean, and Provost in the California community college system for over a decade, and worked as a strategic consultant in industry prior to shifting to higher education.  He brings a unique dual perspective with over 25 years of consulting experience in the industry and higher education and brings an energy and passion for authentic change to improve outcomes.
