I am interested in talent from a research perspective: how we define talent, where it comes from, and what we can do to help others develop their own talent.
I am interested in how divisions of academic affairs and student affairs can collaborate to foster a more transformational educational experience for college students. Examples of such partnerships include living-learning programs, residential colleges, and faculty-in-residence.
I am interested in how college administrators (particularly student affairs professionals) become scholar-practitioners in order to foster better student outcomes.
I am interested in how higher education policies, places, people, and programs influence college student retention, engagement, achievement, and learning.
