Angel Pérez, vice president of enrollment and student success at Trinity College in Connecticut, was the keynote speaker for the Collaborative for Access & Successful College Outcomes conference, held at Bowdoin June 18-20, 2018. He spoke about how higher education in the United States will have to adapt to projected demographic shifts in high school graduates. The majority of U.S. students will become students of color sometime mid-century, and fewer of them will be able to easily afford college or university tuition.
Pérez holds a B.S. from Skidmore College, an M.A. from Columbia University, a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University, and a certification in higher education pedagogy from the Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning at Harvard University.
