Thaddeus Guldbrandsen

Plymouth State University
Vice Provost for Research & Engagement

Bio: I am keenly interested in the relationship between OER and "high-impact educational practices," like service learning, student-engaged research, community outreach, and inquiry-based teaching. OER could be a significant part of broader initiatives in higher education reform, dynamic teaching, and reforms in academic publication. As Vice Provost for Research & Engagement at PSU, I oversee the Office of Service Learning, the student research program, the student research conference, the faculty research initiatives, the Office of Sponsored Programs (grants office), federal compliance, technology transfer and intellectual asset management, university relations with Capitol Hill and federal agencies. I am also an anthropologist who remains active as a teacher and scholar.
