Kristin Norris, Ph.D
Director of Assessment, IUPUI Office of Community Engagement
Kristin Norris is the Director of Assessment for the Office of Community Engagement at IUPUI. Kristin works with stakeholders (internal and external) to track community-engaged activities in order to conduct assessment, evaluation, and research that transforms higher education and demonstrates how IUPUI’s community engaged activities (e.g., programs, pedagogies, research, initiatives) support the institutional mission, demonstrate progress toward the strategic plan, and inform decision making. Kristin is passionate about student civic outcomes and the public purpose of higher education in addressing community issues.
Kristin earned her B.S. from Purdue University and M.S. from Indiana University in Hospitality & Tourism Management and her Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration from the IU School of Education at Indiana University. She is an editorial fellow for the Metropolitan Universities journal and chair of IUPUI’s Program Review and Assessment Committee
Director of The Center for Community-Engaged Teaching and Research at Duquesne University
Dr. Jessica Mann is the Director of the Center for Community-Engaged Teaching & Research at Duquesne University. She has extensive experience with developing, implementing, and evaluating service-learning and community engagement programming in both the academic and co-curricular realms. Jess’s career and research has focused on exploring the ways in which institution’s programs, policies, and procedures respond to their larger civic and social responsibilities. She has, therefore, spent her time in higher education developing and enacting strategic plans, assessing and evaluating institutional programs and initiatives, and creating and implementing programming that enhances the educational experience of students and supplements the research of faculty and staff while simultaneously serving the local community. Her research has been published in journals, books, and encyclopedias such as: The Journal of Student Affairs Research & Practice; Education, Citizenship, & Social Justice; and the Encyclopedia of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Dr. Mann also teaches graduate courses in higher education administration as well as research methodology and serves as an article reviewer for the International Journal of Research on Service-Learning and Community Engagement, and a proposal reviewer for the American Educational Research Association and the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities.
