David Keys, Associate Dean for Student Success

With more than 12 years of experience in Higher Education, David has served in roles within Residential Life, Student Organizations & Leadership, and Records & Registration. After obtaining degrees from the University of Tennessee (BA in Geography) and East Tennessee State University (MAT in Secondary Education), David discovered a deep passion for providing higher education access to students who tend to be left in the margins.

His main focus is to ensure students have a sense of belonging and support outside of the classroom.

Originally born in Memphis, Tennessee, David has lived in the Chicagoland area for nine years and does not have plans to move away. His hobbies include exploring the city, running, playing volleyball, and as a graduate of University of Tennessee, he also loves cheering on the Volunteers in College Football.
