Stephen John Quaye
Associate Professor, Student Affairs in Higher Education, Miami University
Stephen John Quaye focuses on understanding how students can engage difficult issues—such as privilege, oppression, and power—civilly and honestly, as well as how storytelling is used as an educational tool to foster reflection and learning across differences. He also is interested in the strategies educators use to facilitate these dialogues and what they learn about themselves in the process.

His work has been published in venues such as The Review of Higher Education, Teachers College Record, the Journal of College Student Development, and Equity & Excellence in Education. He is co-editor with Shaun R. Harper of the second edition of Student Engagement in Higher Education: Theoretical Perspectives and Practical Approaches for Diverse Populations. He holds a PhD from Pennsylvania State University, a master’s degree from Miami University, and a bachelor of science degree from James Madison University.

Registration includes meals, entertainment, and transportation to the elements of the conference noted in the agenda.
