Keynote Speaker

Carol Tannous is the Director of Strategic Initiatives & Student Success for the School of Education, Health & Human Performance, Coordinator for the Wilderness Explorer First Year Seminar Program, and Coordinator for the newly implemented SOAR First Year Seminar Program at Fairmont State University in Fairmont, West Virginia.

Carol’s 29 years in Higher Education began at Indiana University of Pennsylvania where she mapped out a successful career working as a Student Affairs Administrator in Residence Life, Assistant Director of Career Services, and as a faculty member and academic advisor in the nationally recognized Learning Center Program.

Carol’s core professional values stem from a fundamental belief that once a student makes a commitment to attend college, it is the responsibility of all members of a campus community to walk with them on their journey to graduation and beyond. When asked what she does for a living, Carol will tell you that she helps students through moments, and walks with them through laughter, celebration, and sometimes tears as they pursue their dream of attaining a college degree.

Carol has been awarded the NACADA Outstanding Student Advocate Award, and the Presidential Scoop award at Fairmont State.  She considers her 12-year collection of “My Story” assignments to be a badge of honor and a testament to the lives of the students who she has walked with in their journey through college. 

In her spare time, Carol enjoys traveling, photography, hiking, and spending time with Zen and Canyon, her black lab and pit-bull Jack Russell terrier mix.  She loves the outdoors and has a lifetime goal of visiting all the US National Parks.
