Wednesday, April 8, 2015
Anthony Lising Antonio is Associate Professor of Education and Associate Director of the Stanford Institute for Higher Education Research at Stanford University. Antonio’s research focuses on stratification and postsecondary access, racial diversity and its impact on students and institutions, student friendship networks, and student development.
His work on racial diversity was cited in a number of amicus briefs filed with the Supreme Court for the historic case on affirmative action at the University of Michigan in 2003, and he received the Promising Scholar/Early Career Award from the Association for the Study of Higher Education in 2004.
In 2003, with collaborators Michael Kirst and Andrea Venezia, he published the policy report and accompanying brief, Betraying the College Dream: How Disconnected K-12 and Postsecondary Education Systems Undermine Student Aspirations, one of the most widely cited reports on college access and K-16 education policy. His latest book is Assessment For Excellence: The Philosophy And Practice Of Assessment And Evaluation In Higher Education (2012), with Alexander W. Astin. His work has also been published in several leading journals including the Journal of Higher Education, Research in Higher Education, Psychological Science, Review of Higher Education, and Anthropology and Education Quarterly. Antonio has extensive experience designing and administering large-scale student surveys.
As a research analyst with the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, Antonio assisted on the development of the annual survey of over 500,000 first-time college freshmen and follow-up surveys of college seniors. At Stanford, he oversaw the development and administration of high school student surveys deployed in six states for The Bridge Project with Stanford colleague Professor Michael Kirst. Antonio is also deeply involved in the design and execution of qualitative case study projects. For example, he has been the lead researcher for a set of qualitative case studies of college-going culture spanning 24 high schools in 7 states since 2009. Among his current projects are studies of engineering education and career persistence (a project of the National Bureau of Economic Research) and college counseling programs in schools. Antonio has received grants from Hewlett, Carnegie, Ford, and Irvine Foundations to support his work.
