Kimberly Griffin

Kimberly Griffin, University of Maryland

Kimberly Griffin is an Associate Professor in the Higher Education, Student Affairs, and International Education Policy Program (Student Affairs Area of Specialization). Dr. Griffin earned her doctoral degree in Higher Education and Organizational Change from the University of California, Los Angeles, her Master's degree in Education Policy and Leadership at the University of Maryland, College Park, and her bachelor's degree from Stanford University in Psychology. Prior to completing her doctoral work, Dr. Griffin worked in higher education administration, primarily focusing in the areas of diversity recruitment, admissions, and retention at the graduate and undergraduate levels.


Dr. Griffin's research interests are primarily focused in three areas: the access, experiences, and outcomes of underrepresented communities in higher education; diversity within the Black higher education community; and the influence of relationships on outcomes at critical time points. These interests have led her to conduct work on a variety of topics, including mentoring relationships in academe, diversity in the professoriate and career development of Ph.D. completers in science, Black professors and their engagement in student interaction, the experiences of Black immigrant college students, diversity recruitment in graduate education, and campus racial climate.


Dr. Griffin's diverse interests and background have provided the opportunity to become skilled in advanced quantitative and qualitative methods, as well as the integration of these strategies in mixed methods research. She was co-PI on a grant from the Burroughs Welcome Fund, supporting a study of Ph.D.s biomedical science from diverse backgrounds, exploring their career development and changes in interest in academic careers. She has also conducted research on the access and experiences of graduate students of color, studying a NIH Bridges to the Doctorate Program and the University of Maryland System AGEP PROMISE program.  Dr. Griffin's research has been published in journals such as the Journal of Higher Education, Review of Higher Education, and Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, and she has consulted with multiple institutions and professional membership organizations regarding how to increase diversity and equity, with a focus on graduate education and the professoriate.
