Susan Mun is currently pursuing a Ph.D. with an emphasis in Higher Education through the SDSU/CGU Joint Doctoral Program in Education. Her dissertation will focus on the role of social inclusion in a college access model for disabled students, using the Education Longitudinal Study (ELS:2002) from the U.S. Department of Education's National Center for Education Statistics.
Susan worked in higher education institutional research for seven years, first with the Department of Student Testing, Assessment, & Research at San Diego State University and then with the San Diego Community College District. Due to her desire to have a wider, more far-reaching impact on higher education, she accepted the position of Implementation Manager for TaskStream's Accountability Management System in 2011 and now helps institutions manage their assessment and accountability processes by using Web-based technology.
Susan passed her first qualifying exam, the “Great Books” Written Qualifying Examination in Higher Education, with Distinction. In her second qualifying exam, she used a path analytical model to identify structural race/gender inequalities in a writing proficiency assessment. Part of her third qualifying exam, a policy document entitled, “Guidelines for Implementing the Research Planning Agenda,” earned an Award of Achievement in Planning from the Research and Planning Group in 2008.
Susan has presented her work at conferences, including the AIR Annual Forum, CAIR Annual Forum, and Strengthening Student Success. In 2006, she was designated as a Fellow of the AIR Summer Data Policy Institute. Additional honors include the Ralph Perkins Scholarship (Williams College, ’94) and the Diversity Incentive Scholarship (Ursuline College, ’00).
