2019 IHE Report News

As I return after a year serving in the role of senior vice president for academic affairs and provost, I am struck by the Institute’s deep engagement in instruction, research, and public service. Our faculty not only research issues of policy and administration, they also share their expertise with multiple constituents locally and nationally, while working closely with our graduate students to prepare the next generation of leaders.

AERA Dissertation Award Received by Jones

Noble Jones (PhD 2018) received a 2019 Outstanding Dissertation Award from the American Education Research Association (AERA) Division J at the annual conference in Toronto in April. One of the leading research societies, AERA Division J, promotes the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.

New faculty member George Spencer works to remove barriers for underrepresented students.

The Institute of Higher Education welcomed George C. Spencer, Jr. as assistant professor of higher education, beginning the fall term of 2019. He joined IHE from the Steinhardt Graduate School of Culture, Education, and Human Development at New York University where he had been a Dean’s Faculty Fellow since 2017.

Faculty around the Institute of Higher Education know that research is a verb. They seek to connect their investigations to policy initiatives and general improvements in decision making in higher education. Here, IHE professors share a sampling of current projects.
