A Princeton, Penn, and Syracuse graduate, Pascarella has been breaking new ground in education for decades. He’s authored more than 130 journal articles and coauthored the 1991 book, How College Affects Students, which received the Research Achievement Award from the Association for the Study of Higher Education.
Gleidson Gouveia, a Ph.D. student in Schools, Culture, and Society from Joinville, Brazil, considered attending Columbia University but ultimately selected the UI College of Education because of professors like Pascarella. “My favorite class is Research Process and Design with Dr. Pascarella. He’s very knowledgeable and his class is stimulating and fun. It’s a privilege to be in class with a professor who is so well-recognized for his research.”
