Associate Professor

Assistant: John Baker


Dr. Antonio's research focuses on equity issues in American higher education. As admission spots into higher education institutions become more competitive and more acute, he seeks to achieve a better understanding of how college-going cultures are developed and maintained in schools. He is also interested in network approaches to conceptualizing and studying college student development, particularly among racial, ethnic and religious minorities. His current projects also include studies of engineering education.
