Dr. Coe Fills a Scholar-Administrator Research Gap

Fresh off the scholarly press, University of Phoenix School of Advanced Studies Program Dean, Aaron Coe, Ed.D., and Ravi Chinta, Ph.D. have filled a gap in the literature by having an article published that examined the lived experiences of scholar-administrators who published. Their article entitled, The Ontology of Scholar-Administrators: Empirical Inferences from Five Senior Administrators Who Published, was published in the March 7, 2016 edition of The Qualitative Report. Coe and Chinta conducted a phenomenological study using email to recruit 44 administrators at seven different public Southwest public schools of which seven administrators had been willing to be examined, five of which qualified by having a scholarly article published. According to the study abstract, “Their findings show that the administrators were more connected to the people within and outside the university, their own field of practice, and with the university.” In addition, the impact of being a practicing scholar-administrator contributes to networking by keeping the educational units they lead aware of environmental trends.
