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.
It's good to talk.
