Lori Wolff, Ph.D., joined the GSE as an Associate Dean in 2016, bringing with her a wealth of experience both in teaching and higher education administration. She is also a current member of the faculty in the Division of Psychological andd Educational Services (PES).
Previously, Wolff was Professor and Director of the Center of Educational Research and Evaluation at the University of Mississippi. She holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics from Creighton University and earned her Ph.D. in Higher Education/Student Personnel and J.D. from Saint Louis University. During her career, she’s worked in both academic and administrative roles. While in law school, she clerked for an appellate court judge in Missouri.
In addition to my interest in mathematics and statistics anxiety, I also have worked in previous institutions with some faculty members in counselor education, including research related to career transitions.
In addition, having a background in statistics and research means that I am often able to collaborate with other faculty members in terms of setting up the research design and working with both qualitative and quantitative research. It allows me to work with interdisciplinary research projects.
