Dr. Williams, president of St. Petersburg College will share her experience growing up and how many mentors "stood in the gap" to help her succeed - not only her academic journey, but also shaping her vision and values to work hard to overcome barriers. Helping students achieve upward economic mobility and a livable wage should be at the core of all we do. The path to get there is different for each student and our traditional support systems need to be disrupted in order to meet students where they are at. Dr. Williams will describe how supporting today’s student requires new approaches, new partnerships and new ways of thinking.
