Expert Background

Before joining the faculty of the Department of Educational Management and Development in the College of Education at New Mexico State University, Osanloo received her doctorate in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Program at Arizona State University, specializing in the social and philosophical foundations of education. Her research addressed civic education in a post 9/11 climate focusing on the concepts of democracy, cosmopolitanism, leadership and citizenship from theory to practice. She has merged her work in civics with her new research agenda on collaborative systemic diversity based interventions for bullying. She taught in the New York City public schools working primarily with junior high school students in the South Bronx and jointly was a program director at the Harlem Educational Activities Fund - a not-for-profit that specialized in closing the gap between educational attainment and disenfranchised students. In general, her research agenda focuses on issues of educational equity; social justice; educational leadership and policy; the philosophical foundations of education; diversity, multiculturalism, and social egalitarianism; and bullying interventions.
