“We cannot overstate how important student success is to our community,” Conoley said. “In fact, you can say that it’s at the very heart of what we do. And we do it in what I like to call a ‘high touch, high tech’ way. It’s a personal, proactive approach by the university that keeps students involved in their own success.”

Conoley began hosting shows on Beach TV last year as a way to give viewers the opportunity to learn more about the campus and promote universty's "No Barriers" message.
