Lisa is currently at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign where she has a cross appointment in the College of Education and University of Illinois Extension. Her research focuses on the opportunities and challenges related to youth-adult and school-community partnerships within learning environments. She is particularly interested in issues of culture, equity and voice within programs that target underserved and minority youth. Through her work in extension, she serves as the campus specialist for youth programs in science, engineering and technology across the state. Under the umbrella of 4-H, these initiatives are engaging youth as leaders in their communities, using technology such as video, podcasting, and GIS/GPS to address real world issues in their communities. Lisa also serves on an advisory board for Native American student recruitment and retention at the University of Illinois.
