Four Pitt Education faculty and one alumna earned honors at the 2023 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting.

An AERA special interest group on graduate education awarded the 2023 Publication of the Year Award to Linda DeAngelo, associate professor of higher education; Max Schuster, assistant professor of practice; and alumna Qiana Lachaud (EDUC ’20G). Their article, “The Faculty Role in Grooming and Gatekeeping Students' of Color Potential Along the Professoriate Pipeline," was published in The Review of Higher Education.

The article examines how assumptions about student success, such as the ways faculty understand the utility of and use grades and tests scores as measures of student potential, limit access to mentoring for students of color.

Pitt’s Eleanor Anderson, assistant professor of research-practice partnerships, and Emily Rainy, assistant professor of language, literacy and culture, were named 2022 Outstanding Reviewers. The annual award recognizes peer reviewers for providing exemplary, thorough and timely reviews of manuscripts received at their journals.

This is the second year Anderson, a reviewer for the journal Educational Researcher, has received the honor from AERA. Rainey earned the award for her work with AERA Open, an open-access journal that emphasizes rapid review and dissemination to advance timely knowledge related to education.
