Stacy Grooters

Interim Director

Stacy Grooters

As the CTE’s Interim Director, Stacy develops opportunities for instructors at BC for both faculty and graduate students to reflect together on their teaching. She is also active in the POD Network, a national organization of teaching centers, and currently serves on POD's Board of Directors. Her research examines the roles of instructor and student identities in the classroom, as well as broader questions of diversity in higher education. Her most recent publication examines the POD Network's scholarly engagement with diversity in its publications and conferences.

Stacy gained her first experience in the classroom teaching English to secondary school students as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bayanhongor, Mongolia—a small town on the northern edge of the Gobi Desert. She then went on to pursue an M.A. in English from Miami University in Oxford, OH and a PhD in English (with a concentration in Women Studies) from the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. At the University of Washington, Stacy taught in the departments of English, Ethnic Studies, and Women’s Studies. She also worked as an administrator in the Expository Writing Program and an instructional consultant in the Center for Instructional Development and Research.

In 2007, Stacy joined Stonehill College as the Founding Director of their Center for Teaching and Learning, which also housed the Office of Community-Based Learning. In addition, Stacy taught as an Assistant Professor in both the English department and the Gender & Sexuality Studies program and chaired the Provost’s Advisory Committee on Diversity.
