Featuring: Professor Joel Scott, Graduate Program Director of Higher Education Administration
Professor Joel Scott is the graduate program director for higher education administration. Professor Scott’s recent chapter in Facilitating Moral Growth in Today’s College Students (2012) explores the intersection of service-learning and moral growth. Professor Scott has served in student and academic affairs leadership capacities at private, faith-based, and public-land grant institutions involving leadership and civic engagement, residential education, and service-learning administration. His generalist background in higher education administration is reflective of his scholarship interest in college student learning and development, university-community engagement, campus/institutional culture, and underrepresented perspectives. Professor Scott also has extensive experience in student affairs program assessment and evaluation, having consulted on over 50 projects, including co-authoring a comprehensive model and training curriculum for student affairs professionals, and recently serving as directorate board for the American College Personnel Association’s (ACPA) Commission for Assessment and Evaluation (2007-2013). Prior to his career in higher education administration, Professor Scott taught ESL for two years in Japan.
