Director, Learner Success Lab
American Council on Education
Lindsey Myers is the director of the Learner Success Lab at the American Council on Education (ACE). In this role, she leads efforts to develop a program that will guide institutions through a strategic planning process to maximize student persistence and completion and ensure that learners acquire the skills necessary for success in today’s workforce. Myers brings extensive teaching, research, and higher education leadership experience to her work with ACE. She teaches sociology and interdisciplinary courses in a variety of institutional settings (public and private, two-year and four-year, selective and open-enrollment, research and teaching-focused) and instructional formats (face-to-face, hybrid, online, accelerated). Her research touches on a number of social institutions and how they intersect, including education, the criminal justice system, and the labor market. Myers has also held positions in higher education administration, where she was responsible for evaluating credit programming, institutional research, and academic and co-curricular assessment. A first-generation college graduate, Myers earned her Ph.D. in sociology from The Ohio State University, as well as an MBA in marketing and a B.S. in sociology, both from York College of Pennsylvania.
