Keri Myrick is the Director of Special Programs in the Honors College at the University of Houston. Currently, Ms. Myrick is pursuing a Ph.D. in Higher Education Leadership and Policy Studies. Her research considers humanitarian-action-oriented study abroad programs as a high-impact practice (HIP) and how reflective practice shapes students’ pre- and post-trip perspectives. Her other interests include identity development in refugee populations, and HIP approaches with low-SES students. She has participated in four research fellowships to the Middle East, where she examined public K-20 education in Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, and the UAE. Ms. Myrick recently presented on “ePortfolios as a Meta-High-Impact Practice” at the AAC&U’s Annual Meeting, and on “The Promise of Experiential Learning for Disadvantaged Student Populations” at the ASHE Annual Conference.
