Assistant Professor; Associate Provost for Institutional Research and Planning
Institutional research acts as a hub in higher education institutions, bringing historically siloed areas together. We get to help people frame questions, identify opportunities, and determine whether solutions are having expected impacts.

Learning is a shared and collective process. This type of participatory learning can occur when students and teachers are reflective about who they are in relation to others, and that it is important to understand social inequities and how higher education and student affairs practitioners can play a role in dismantling systematic oppression in order to create socially just learning environments.
How does this mitigate inequality? That question is at the core of my research and teaching. By identifying and understanding the maintenance of structural inequality, higher education can come closer to addressing the stratification of opportunity that persistently advantages the well-resourced, and disadvantages the marginalized.
Associate Professor; Department of Educational Leadership Chair
I believe in working collaboratively with schools and educational organizations to find generative solutions that bring forward silenced voices and compel social change.

Find your resources on campus, figure out who and what will help you reach your goals. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. You shouldn’t know the answers to all of your questions, that’s why they are questions. Ask your professors, ask a staff member, ask a peer, just don’t be afraid to ask the questions. This is a learning process, not just in the classroom, but out of the classroom as well.
