As Assistant Director of Equity and Inclusion, Ashlie Sandoval oversees the development and delivery of programming regarding equity, inclusion, and belonging in higher education pedagogy for faculty and graduate students. Ashlie leads seminars, workshops, reading groups, and one-on-one consultations. She also provides direction for the Undergraduate Pedagogy Fellows, a cohort of Harvard undergraduates who facilitate workshops for instructors on issues of power and privilege in the classroom.
Her approach to equity and inclusion draws from scholarship in Women of Color Feminisms, Black Studies, Decolonial Theory, Disability Studies, Asian American Studies, Indigenous Studies, Latinx Studies, Queer of Color Critique, and American Studies. Trained as a performance studies scholar, Ashlie brings an attention to the embodied dimensions of pedagogy and has interests in active learning, metacognition, and mindfulness.
Before coming to the Bok Center, Ashlie worked with the Center for Teaching and Learning at Amherst College as a Center for Humanistic Inquiry Fellow and served as a Princeton-Mellon Fellow at Princeton University. She received her PhD in Performance Studies from Northwestern University, her MA in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from the University of Cincinnati, and her BA in Japanese and Political Science from San Francisco State University.
