Teaching & Research Interests
I study the organizational behavior of colleges and universities. My research program analyzes how colleges and universities change behavior to generate enrollment from desired student populations. I am interested in the tensions between the enrollment pursuits of access, academic prestige, and revenue generation. One line of research analyzes the causes and consequences of out-of-state enrollment growth at public universities. An emerging line of research uses “data science” methods of data collection to understand which students colleges actually recruit. My teaching interests are applied quantitative methods, organizational theory, higher education finance, and enrollment management.
