Personal profile

Personal profile

My professional career has included administration in higher education as an Associate Chancellor, Director of an Educational Opportunity Program and a TRIO project Director. I currently enjoy a professorship in Education and Sociology that has afforded me the opportunity to contribute to the diversification of scholars in both Education research and research in the Sociology of Education.

Research Interests

My past research has focused on: 1) Educational Inequality; school desegregation effects (K-12, post-secondary), benefits and consequences; social organization of schools, status attainment research, co-and extracurricular activities, comparative education; 2) Race and Ethnicity: social stratification and mobility, equality of opportunity; and 3) Complex Organization/Social Change/Education Policy.

I was PI for a study of the Summer Research Opportunity Program in the CIC and PI for an NSF funded STEM study focused on Broadening participation and understanding STEM interventions supporting successful completion.


My staple course has been the Sociology of Education course. In addition I offer seminars on Access to and in higher education; Education and Stratification, and Education Policy.
