Tenisha Tevis is an Assistant Professor in the Adult and Higher Education  program at Oregon State University.  Empirically, drawing on her former administrative experience, she has improved the practice of higher education administrators, re-conceptualized theoretical frameworks to explain how administrators can better support disenfranchised students, and has given voice to underserved and marginalized populations, specifically students with disabilities. Her scholarship has a strong P-20 pipeline focus as she explores students’ transition to college and the myriad factors, including policy, that influence their choices about pursuing higher education.
