OUR TEAM

Dr. Tricia SeifertPrimary Investigator
Christine Helen ArnoldYouth Outreach Coordinator

Tricia Seifert is an Assistant Professor in the Adult and Higher Education program at Montana State University and maintains a faculty appointment in the Higher Education program at the University of Toronto/OISE.

I am interested in understanding how colleges and universities promote their student success programs and services. When not researching and teaching, I trail run and bike and am always looking for an excuse to get to the mountains.

Christine Arnold is a doctoral candidate in the Higher Education program at the University of Toronto/OISE.

My research interests include the student experience, with a focus on teaching and learning, student services/affairs and credit transfer articulation and mobility. Activities of choice include playing on recreation dodgeball and baseball leagues, running, and baking yummy treats for my family and friends.

I am interested in the postsecondary student experience, particularly around mental health and disabilities. I enjoy helping students develop academic skills and providing positive mentorship. In my free time, I scavenge the internet for hot topics related to education and student affairs.

When I spent the last year of my undergraduate program in Italy on exchange, I could never have imagined where it would lead me. I have worked with other exchange students, international students and am now researching what it is that makes for a great experience for students abroad.

Diliana Peregrina-Kretz is a doctoral candidate in the Higher Education program at the University of Toronto/OISE.

For eight years I have had the privilege of working with students in different capacities in postsecondary education and these interactions have inspired me to pursue my studies. I am interested in student transitions from high school to college or university; how students navigate postsecondary education; and how institutions support students, particularly students from under-represented backgrounds.

Kimberly Elias is finishing her Master's degree in the Higher Education program at the University of Toronto/OISE.

My research investigates whether employers look at co-curricular engagement during the hiring process. I am passionate about getting involved outside the classroom. I was an involved student leader and am now coordinating the development of the Co-Curricular Record at the University of Toronto, which allows students to find opportunities on campus and record involvement on an official university document. I love to play soccer in my free time!
