Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Access in Education
Education in this country is highly stratified. I am committed to creating greater equity, access, and understanding. To this end, I regularly work with community organizations, K-12 school districts, libraries, and higher education institutions to develop and implement training programs for faculty, staff, administrators, and community members.
In partnership with other experts, I have provided presentations, workshops, and consulting services to organizations looking to train their employees and change institutional culture to better serve the needs of all students. Project topics include: developing inclusive and anti-racist pedagogical practices, cultivating effective allyship, revising district/institutional policies and enforcement from an equity lens, and building a more representative leadership pipeline. Recent clients include Maumee City Schools (Ohio) and Metropolitan State University Denver (Colorado).
Since 2019 I have also served as a coach with the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, helping university faculty across the U.S. and Canada to improve their research/creative productivity and work-life balance through empirically tested strategies. I work with pre-tenure and mid-career faculty to help them align their time with their values and priorities, improving their levels of job satisfaction (as well as productivity) and reducing burnout. To date, I had worked with more than sixty faculty across a range of institutional types: small liberal arts colleges, flagship state universities, elite private schools, and regional comprehensive universities.
University Administrative Experience and Academic Program Review
As a result of my administrative experience on a large college campus, I provide workshops, consulting services, and speaking engagements on topics such as, “Doing More with Less: Making the Most of Existing Resources,” “Building Interdisciplinary Collaborations,” “The Public Humanities for the Public Good,” and “The Forest and the Trees: The Importance of Shared Governance.” I also have experience with external program review, grant and fellowship application evaluation (including for the National Endowment for the Humanities), book prize committees, and other professional activities.
