Dr. Xyanthe Neider received her Ph.D. from Washington State University in Higher Education Administration and Cultural Studies and Social Thought in Education in 2010. Her research explores the systems of power and oppression that exist within higher education institutions and in turn, affect notions of multiculturalism, diversity, and student access and success. Xyanthe has won several awards; the most notable are the Washington State University Woman of Distinction Student Award, the American Educational Research Association – Critical Issues in Curriculum and Cultural Studies Graduate Student Paper Award, and the Washington State University Employee of the Week. In addition to teaching research and social foundations courses in the College of Education, Xyan is the Coordinator of Writing Assessment in the Writing Program.
