Areas of work: Faculty and Staff Formation
Beth Barsotti is serving in the role of Senior Specialist for Faculty and Staff Formation. Her research is poised at the intersections of Academic and Student Affairs in higher education and centrally concerned with fostering holistic formation. Her research interests include Catholic higher education, synodality, formative education, the identity and role of the educator, and college student development. Her interest in formation is rooted in her experiences living and working in a L’Arche community and further informed by her work within Catholic higher education and Catholic parishes. She is “all but dissertation” on the path to earning a Ph.D. in Theology and Education at the School of Theology and Ministry at Boston College with a focus on faculty formation in Jesuit higher education.
