We seek new colleagues who share our program's philosophical belief in the transformational nature of higher education as an institution of social change.

We welcome applicants who utilize a full range of qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodological approaches. While a broad set of research areas will be considered, priority will be placed on applicants whose scholarship a) addresses issues of equity and adequacy related to student access, retention, and success; b) evaluates and contributes to higher education policy development and implementation; and, c) investigates issues salient to the experiences of historically underserved students.
