Tania has more than a decade of experience cultivating deep and varied collaborations between academic and community partners to support the co-creation of knowledge by bringing faculty scholarship and teaching interests into conversation with community-identified priorities and goals in locations ranging from Ohio to Hong Kong. As a practitioner of community-engaged scholarship she prioritizes ethical and meaningful engagement through place-based pedagogy and community-based participatory research grounded in the discipline of History.

Prior to her work at Princeton, Boster was the Executive Director of Oberlin College and Conservatory's Bonner Center for Community-Engaged Learning, Teaching & Research, and taught in Oberlin's History Department and First-Year Seminar Program; previously she coordinated strategic projects and initiatives at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. She holds a Ph.D. in History from the University of Pittsburgh.
