Julia Savoy

Assistant Researcher

Julia Nelson Savoy is an assistant researcher with the Center for the Integration for Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) and the Talking about Leaving Revisited Study (TALR) in the Wisconsin Center for Education Research.

Her research has addressed faculty work life, productivity, and satisfaction; diversity in higher education; academic department climate and decision-making; and the use of innovative mixed methods in research and evaluation.

Currently, she is investigating the effects of professional development participation on career interests, goals, and pathways in higher education, especially among STEM doctoral students and early-career faculty. She also examines institutional transformation in higher education and the effects of reform efforts focused on undergraduate STEM education in that process.
