Consultant on Pathways to Results

Heather McCambly, an assistant professor of higher education policy at the University of Pittsburgh, is an expert in mixed-methods analysis research in the domain of postsecondary racial and socioeconomic equity. Her work focuses on the implications of and pathways out of racialized higher education policies that disadvantaged minoritized students and the institutions that predominantly serve them, in particular community colleges. She is a long-time affiliate member of the Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL), having previously served as project manager for the organization's Pathways to Results Initiative. Her work centers on the way states, funders, and other actors can (re)build sustainable structure for racially equitable outcomes.
