I am passionate about higher education’s power to change lives and the responsibility of expanding educational opportunities for others. As a faculty member, department chair, program director and administrator, my work in higher education has been focused on educational pipelines and fostering access and equity. I have spent my career trying to better understand the pipelines’ leaks, detours and stops, particularly for underserved, first-generation college students.”
