Lunch and Lead with Dr. Jennifer Timmer

Join us for our CHDCM IE Lunch and Lead hosted by Dr. Jennifer, Assistant Professor in the Department of Education Leadership, Management and Policy at the College of Human Development, Culture, and Media (CHDCM).  Dr. Timmer will share her research focused on the gender disparities in principal salaries, how pathways to the superintendency differ by race and gender, and the “glass cliff” phenomenon of hiring women into precarious leadership positions.

Dr. Timmer’s research focuses on representation, access, and compensation in the principalship and superintendency, and how quantitative methods can help advance equity in education. She was awarded a grant from the Seton Hall University Research Council to compile a rich statewide longitudinal data set appropriate for research on education leaders in New Jersey and is using this data set to investigate representation of newly hired leaders in precarious positions as defined by student achievement or school/district funding levels.

Coffee and Conversations: Rehumanizing International Students with Dr. Santiago Castiello on Thursday October 12

Join us at the Campus Inclusion Center (CIC) for Coffee and Conversations: Rehumanizing International Students on Campus with Dr. Santiago Castiello on Thursday, October 12, at 2 p.m. in the University Center, Room 209.

In his talk, Dr. Santiago Castiello, Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the Department of Education Leadership, Management and Policy, will discuss his work on the experiences of international students on campus. Over the past years, Dr. Castiello and his colleagues have published extensively on the challenges faced by international students in the United States and the dehumanizing policies they encounter. From the threat of deportation to being portrayed as potential criminals and economic commodities, Dr. Castiello’s work looks to highlight the urgent need to reevaluate how we perceive and support international students on our campuses.
Let’s come together to discuss how we can actively contribute to a more inclusive and compassionate environment for international students, where they are valued not just for their financial contributions but as individuals with unique stories and lives. Join us in exploring ways to create a campus culture that truly embraces the diversity and humanity of our international student community. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.

Please register online.
