In Memory of Dr. Suanne Roueche


It is with heavy hearts and sadness that we relay the passing of our dear colleague Dr. Suanne Roueche on December 24, 2017. Her dedication to teaching excellence and student success contributed enormously to our mission and work and helped shape the community college field. We send our condolences to her husband and long-term professional partner Dr. John Roueche during this very difficult time. We would like to share an article published in Community College Daily highlighting a few of her many accomplishments.

Suanne Roueche demonstrated the epitome of teaching and learning and in 2012, the League for Innovation in the Community College, established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards as a tribute to outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff. Her service to community colleges and, specifically, to teaching and learning will continue to serve as a beacon for student success.
