ProCES is delighted to welcome Tania Boster, Ph.D., to its team.
Tania comes to us from Oberlin College, where she worked for the past decade and served as the Executive Director of Oberlin's Bonner Center for Community-Engaged Learning, Teaching & Research; inaugural Director of Experiential Learning in the College of Arts and Sciences; and held a courtesy appointment as Assistant Professor of History. Tania brings to Princeton deep and varied experiences with community-engaged teaching and learning, along with a demonstrated commitment to working collaboratively with campus and community partners to co-create knowledge that serves the public good.
Her work as a practitioner of community-engaged scholarship prioritizes ethical and meaningful engagement in the world through place-based pedagogy and community-based participatory research grounded in the discipline of History, as well as an approach to faculty development that seeks to align faculty scholarship and teaching interests with community-identified needs and goals. Prior to her work at Oberlin, Boster coordinated strategic projects and initiatives at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of Pittsburgh.
