Karen Gross is the author of Breakaway Learners: Strategies for Post-Secondary Success with At-Risk Students. (2017; Teachers College Press -www.tcpress..com)

Karen is a higher education consultant based in Washington, DC.

She was the president of Southern Vermont College for 8 years and a tenured law professor for 20+ years.

Today, we talk about what it is like to be a college president, what she liked about teaching law, and of course our main topic - Breakaway Learners.

Karen explains what a Breakaway Learner is and shares her thoughts about a term she created: "lasticity."

We take a look at a few of my favorite chapters especially Chapter 7 - The Untapped Power of Plasticity.

Lots of food for thought.
