Trained in both education and political science, I am a scholar-practitioner of experiential learning, global education, and civic engagement. My research is focused on understanding universities as political actors and the ways in which they prepare students to be engaged and diplomatic citizens, both within and beyond national borders. This interest is also at the heart of my teaching and administrative work, as I have developed numerous educational initiatives that seek to bridge theory and action, including programs and courses in community engagement, service-learning, global studies, career development, and intercultural communication. Whether it be through classroom teaching, designing experiential learning programs, or publishing research, my ultimate goal is to help students expand their awareness of the world and locate their agency within it, and to empower them to take an active role in creating the future they want to see.
