Alexandros M. Goudas is an Associate Professor of English at Delta College in Michigan and author of Community College Data. He has been teaching at Delta College since 2009 but has also taught at Darton State College in southwest Georgia (now Albany State University) and Minnesota State University, Mankato. Before that he was a licensed K-12 teacher in Minnesota public and private schools. In addition to teaching all levels of remedial reading and writing courses and college composition, Alex has authored an OER English composition textbook. He is also very involved with analyzing studies, writing articles, and speaking about community college data, reforms, policy, and developmental education. He was Developmental Education Coordinator at Delta College from 2012-2017, during which he implemented many successful and innovative interventions to improve outcomes for at-risk students. He is also a doctoral candidate in educational leadership, with a focus on community college data, at Central Michigan University.

In volume 36 of the Journal of Developmental Education (JDE), Alex was lead author on the article “Addressing Flawed Research in Developmental Education” (2012), a publication co-authored by Dr. Hunter R. Boylan. Because of this work, Alex was presented with the JDE Outstanding Article Award at the National Association for Developmental Education (NADE) 2014 Conference, now known as the National Organization for Student Success (NOSS).
