66: The Evolving Professional
Dr. Tasha Gardner has been employed at Drexel University for over 12 years. Currently, she serves as Director for the newly formed Center for Inclusive Education and Scholarship at Drexel University–the center supports students from traditionally underrepresented and underserved backgrounds.
Dr. Tasha holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration both from Drexel. Recently, she completed her doctoral work at Northeastern University, where her dissertation focused on the lack of Black faculty at a PWI and how that impacts the engagement of retention of Black students. Her other research interests include first-generation college students.
In her free time, she loves crafting (anything creative) and baking. Tasha has been at Drexel since starting as a first-year student in 1998. Even though she took a 3-year break before starting full-time, she was still connected to the university. Connect with Dr. Tasha Gardner on LinkedIn.
