Lisa Davidson, Ph.D.
Lisa Davidson is the Assessment and Research Manager at Interfaith Youth Core, an organization in Chicago, Illinois that works with colleges and universities across the U.S. to elevate interfaith cooperation as an institutional priority. In her role, Lisa works to build assessment capacity among campus partners so that they can understand their students’ learning and development as well as their campus climates. She also works directly with campuses on large-scale survey efforts, emphasizing ways institutions can use their findings to make informed decisions. Lisa has nearly two decades of experience in student services, research, and assessment-related areas within colleges and universities. She has also enjoyed teaching higher education program evaluation and college student development courses. Lisa’s research examines the type of learning and development that result from undergraduates’ intercultural engagement, with a special focus on how to measure this inclusively. Lisa is most rewarded by working collaboratively with college and university programs to measure their areas’ effectiveness and by teaching others how to do this important work.
