UCEA Headquarters doctoral student Erin Anderson interviews Executive Committee candidate Azadeh Osanloo.
Candidate bio: Before joining the faculty of the Department of Educational Management and Development at New Mexico State University, Dr. Osanloo received her doctorate in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Program, specializing in the Social and Philosophical Foundations of Education, at Arizona State University. Her research addressed civic and social justice education in a post 9/11 climate focusing on the concepts of democracy, cosmopolitanism, xenophobia, and citizenship from theory to praxis in the K-12 educational system. She has merged her work in civics and social justice with her newer research agenda, which is aimed at establishing and integrating collaborative systemic diversity-based interventions for bullying in middle schools. Prior to being in Arizona she taught in the New York City public school system working with junior high school students in the South Bronx and jointly worked as a program director at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund - a not-for-profit that specialized in closing the gap between educational attainment and disenfranchised students from Harlem, Washington Heights, and the Bronx. While in New York City, she obtained her Master's in Public Administration from New York University's Robert F. Wagner School. In general, her research agenda focuses on issues of educational equity; educational leadership and policy; the philosophical foundations of education; diversity, multiculturalism, and social egalitarianism; and bullying interventions.
UCEA Headquarters doctoral student Amy Reynolds interviews UCEA President Elect Mark Gooden.
Candidate Bio: Mark A. Gooden, PhD is an Associate Professor in the Educational Administration Department and Director of The University of Texas at Austin Principalship Program. His research interests include the principalship, anti-racist leadership, urban educational leadership and legal issues in education. His research has appeared in BYU Education and Law Journal, Education and Urban Society, The Journal of Negro Education, EAQ, The Sage Handbook of African-American Education and The Principal’s Legal Handbook.
Mark’s life in academe was notably impacted by the good work of UCEA in 2000 when he had the honor of being selected as a Clark Scholar. Mark has served in many capacities in UCEA, for example, he has been an interview editor for the UCEA Review, a Jackson Scholar Mentor, a Clark Seminar Distinguished Faculty Member, a Jackson Scholar Advisory Board Member, a PSR and is currently an EC Member. Mark has also served on several ad-hoc and standing committees like the EC Nominating Committee and Bridges Award Selection Committee. Mark is particularly proud of what he has learned and been able to contribute by being a part of the Preparing Leaders to Support Diverse Learners Project. That work led Mark to co-develop (with Ann O’Doherty) a curriculum module for UCEA entitled Building a Community of Trust Through Racial Awareness. This module helps professors and leadership students understand how examining their beliefs, attitudes, and awareness relative to race can improve their ability to support diverse learners. If elected President of UCEA, Mark would continue to work to support the three goals of UCEA while exploring how UCEA’s values of equity, diversity, and social justice can be better integrated to support those goals.
