Associate Editor (Higher Education & Skills for Scholars)
The Princeton University Press education list highlights higher education and features works by economists, historians, and other scholars from the social sciences and humanities. Originating in the early 1990s, the list initially foregrounded the works of the late former Princeton president William G. Bowen and his coauthors, and has included such notable titles as Bowen and Derek Bok’s The Shape of the River.
The list enhances the discussion around higher education by publishing not only great works of scholarship, but also practical books on teaching, learning, and research, as well as titles on best practices in university leadership and administration.
