Tenisha L. Tevis


Tenisha L. Tevis is an Assistant Professor of Adult and Higher Education at Oregon State University. She earned her Ph.D. in Educational Theory and Policy Studies with a cognate in Higher Education from The Pennsylvania State University, and B.A. and M.A. degrees in Sociology from California State University Sacramento. As a praxis scholar, her research attempts to disrupt dominant ideologies and biased institutional practices, in two substantive and intersecting areas: students’ transition to college - exploring how marginalized students continue to be disenfranchised by inequitable practices, and the confluence of leadership and identity in higher education - understanding how leadership practices contribute to the patterns of inequality and exclusion. Her most recent work explores Black women’s and white women’s leadership, respectively, and includes a systematic review of the college access literature to better inform college advising of Black students.
