Research Areas

Faculty work and identity internationally; community colleges, both in the United States and in Canada; governance and management of community colleges; globalization, neoliberalism, and higher education; non- traditional students, including adult learners in higher education; and higher education organization sectoral change.

I conduct research investigations on faculty work in higher education, on community colleges, including student experiences and faculty work, on faculty of color in higher education, and on faculty in other countries’ universities. While I continue my decades long work on community colleges, I have also broadened my focus to include universities, including graduate students and faculty work. As a critical and symbolic institutionalist, I address the experiences of participants in academe—students in community colleges, graduate students in research universities, faculty of color in community colleges, faculty in different institutional types (community college, comprehensive university, and research university), and faculty in different countries.  I focus upon behaviors and identity. I have begun to theorize faculty work and faculty professional and occupational identity. I work closely with graduate students on several of these projects. My work on community colleges as well continues to push community college scholarship to consider alternate perspectives on the institution, including the community college as “new world college,” a reflection of neo-liberalism or new capitalism.  As well, I conduct research in other nations, with collaborative work on Mexican state universities as a recent endeavor. Finally, I am concluding work on institutional change in community colleges in the U.S. and Canada over the period of 2000-2013.This work is follow-up study based upon a project carried out between 1989 and 1999. It culminated in a book, Globalizing the Community College.  Seven institutions comprised my sites and I returned to these sites to examine institutional change over the period of 2000-2013. This is a cross national study (U.S. and Canada) and addresses policies at the federal, state/provincial, and institutional levels that have become institutionalized, as well as policies that have been abandoned over the period. Of the seven original community colleges, three in Canada have become universities; one in Washington State has become baccalaureate degree granting.  The Great Recession of 2008 has affected all of the institutions, but each has coped with financial loss in different ways. The project is called "Revisiting community colleges."  The book I am completing, Community colleges and new universities under neoliberal pressures: Institutional change, institutional stability, is scheduled to be published in 2017 by Palgrave.

Biography

I am the Bank of America Professor of Education Leadership and the Director and Principal Investigator of the California Community College Collaborative (C4), Graduate School of Education, University of California, Riverside. I am the developer of the Higher Education Administration and Policy program and its current convener.

I am a widely published scholar in the U.S. and an acknowledged expert on community colleges in both the U.S. and Canada. My books in the 2000s – Globalizing the community college (Palgrave, 2001), Community college faculty:  At work in the new economy (Palgrave MacMillan, 2006; 2010), with Susan Kater and Richard Wagoner, Non-traditional students and community colleges:  The conflict of justice and neo-liberalism (Palgrave MacMillan, 2007) and Community colleges and their students:  Co-construction and institutional identity (Palgrave MacMillan, 2009), with Virginia Montero Hernandez—are empirically based examinations of community colleges. I recently co-edited two books—Understanding Community Colleges (with Susan Kater) and Educators, professionalism and politics: Global transitions, national spaces, and professional projects (with Terri Seddon). My most recent book-- Community colleges and new universities under neoliberal pressures: Institutional change, institutional stability (Palgrave, 2017) is the culmination of my work on community colleges. I will set out next to write on Market liberalism and the organization and management of the academic profession with two of my graduate students. I have taught and served as an administrator at two community colleges in British Columbia, Canada. I have serves as a professor at the University of Arizona and North Carolina State University. My former students became stellar administrators or scholars; my present students have excellent potential and I have valued their accompanying me on our journeys. I teach a variety of higher education course, most recently qualitative data collection and qualitative data analysis and the community college. Other courses have included Organization and Administration of Higher Education, Critical Issues in Higher Education, Globalization and Higher Education, Research Design and the Dissertation, and Seminars in Higher Education.
