Arlene Scott: Advisor/Mentor to Doctoral Candidates—Online Graduate Faculty—Leadership & Organization Alignment
As an experienced practitioner/scholar and lifelong educator, Dr. Scott brings 25 years’ consulting experience to mentoring doctoral candidates. When mentoring and instructing online doctoral courses, she leverages her wide-ranging business organization experience by using examples relevant to each doctoral candidate’s thesis, facilitating dissertation progress. She has a proven track record for graduating doctoral candidates.
Dr. Scott started her academic career by teaching in innovative higher education programs, such as University Without Walls, and consulting to school districts in New York City. Using an experiential approach to learning, she shifted to the business world and delivered leadership programs and organization change initiatives, domestically and internationally.
Dr. Scott’s career has been a mix of consulting and teaching with her own organization, Change Partners Consulting, and employment with PricewaterhouseCoopers (9 years) in the U.S. and London. Since 2011, Dr. Scott shifted focus back to education and the global explosion of online learning. Her current research focuses on the impact of social interaction on attrition in the online doctoral environment.
