Describe your role in education
I received my Ph.D. in Educational Policy, Organizations and Leadership Studies from the University of California Santa Barbara. Currently I am Professor and Co-Director of the UCSB/Cal Poly Joint Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership. Prior to coming to Cal Poly, I was an Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I also held the position of Associate Director of the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA). UCEA is a consortium of major research universities focused on improving the preparation of educational leaders and promoting the development of professional knowledge in school improvement and administration. I have written and published books, articles and book chapters examining the executive leadership of the superintendent. This work has primarily focused on superintendent beliefs, roles, and work in the area of instructional leadership, policy decision-making, and social influence in addition to the organizational mission and academic success of the district.
