Trained as a cultural anthropologist with degrees from UCLA and California State University, Fullerton, Dr. Kim-Han is a keen observer of socio-cultural ecology both ideological and human, particularly in the nexus between education and technology. Her 28+ years of experience as a leader and change agent in higher education fuels her insights into how best to create communities of innovation within bureaucratic and systemically entrenched organizational structures. Her curiosity regarding these areas led to her doctoral research at Claremont Graduate University, examining networks of change and the influence of leadership in creating cultures of innovation. She received her B.A. from UCLA and M.A. from CSU Fullerton both in cultural anthropology and Ph.D. in Higher Education Policy, Evaluation, and Reform from Claremont Graduate University.
