Kirk Greenwood

Graduate Assistant in Institutional Research (Education; Arts & Humanities; Cultural Studies; Study Skills; Research Methods & Evaluation)


My graduate training is in literary criticism, social and cultural theory, and critical discourse analysis. I discontinued a PhD in early modern studies in 2014 to focus on composition pedagogy and praxis. Since 2015, I have worked as a university administrator, specializing in implementing institutional academic support and retention initiatives for historically underrepresented students. I am currently taking coursework toward a master's degree in higher education administration.
