Southern Wesleyan University selected Dr. Kimberly T. Strike as coordinator of doctoral studies.
In her new role, Strike will provide leadership to Southern Wesleyan’s Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Curriculum and Assessment program.
Strike brings three decades of experience as an educator into her new role. Most recently, she has served as associate professor and program leader at Concordia University in Chicago. Strike’s experience has been shared throughout the corridor of Chicago to Milwaukee, including a state appointment to assist with a turn-around district in Illinois, work with voucher schools in Milwaukee and appointment to turn around a UW charter school in Wisconsin.
Her research has been published in several scholarly publications on topics that include mentoring, performance and accountability. Strike has also been a presenter at several national and international conferences. She recently did a presentation for Carnegie Summit in San Francisco, “Identifying and Growing Internal Leaders: A Framework for Effective Teacher Leadership.” She also recently presented Webinars for the Center for Success/Education Alliance Partnership.
Strike completed her Ph.D. in curriculum and instruction (minor in administration/supervision) from Marquette University (Wisc.), her M.Ed. in curriculum from National Louis University (Ill.), and a BSE in elementary education from University of Wisconsin.
Southern Wesleyan’s Ed.D., which began enrolling doctoral candidates this year, provides an innovative focus on an area seen as essential to educational professionals in an environment increasingly driven by outcomes.
