STAFF NEWS: Inside Higher Ed says farewell to David Moltz, who's departing to take a position with CASE (Council for the Advancement and Support of Education), helping the organization expand its work in the community college sector. David was no doubt an excellent candidate for that job, given his expertise on community colleges -- expertise that has so benefited our readers over the last three years.
We're also pleased to announce that intern Kevin Kiley will be joining the staff permanently as a reporter covering higher education leadership and finance issues. Kevin's been doing terrific work since coming on board in April.
And welcome to our new reporting intern, Derek Quizon. Derek has previously been an intern at The Chronicle of Higher Education and The Arizona Republic. He attended Loyola University Chicago and Estrella Mountain Community College before graduating from Arizona State University, where he majored in political science and was a reporter and editor for the State Press, the student paper.

In an era of increased pressure to produce more college graduates, some institutions are gaining a better understanding of their challenges and adopting new policies by examining the classes where the greatest numbers of students fail. At noon Eastern on July 29, Inside Higher Ed presents Learning from Failures, a one-hour audio conference featuring Kay M. McClenney, director of the Community College Survey of Student Engagement. Ms. McClenney will discuss the kinds of questions to ask about courses with high failure rates and the kinds of policy changes and practices that some colleges have adopted based on the answers. The program is ideal for deans, department heads, academic affairs officers, institutional researchers and student affairs officers.
