Nisha Gupta joined Centre College in 2021. Prior to Centre, Nisha had been a Specialist for Faculty Development in the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Louisville. In this role, she helped faculty develop culminating student experiences, bringing focus to the second-year experience, and cultivating inquiry-based learning, community-based learning, and learning theory into assignments, course development, and assessment measures. She also had been an instructor in the Gender and Sexuality Studies Department and the Peace, Justice, and Conflict Transformation program at UofL, and she is an active community volunteer, with particular interest in anti-oppression organizing. Prior to coming to Louisville in 2009, Gupta was the associate director for professional development programs at the Graduate School of Syracuse University.
Gupta’s scholarship includes inquiry models, implicit bias, social justice topics, curricular design, and queer studies. Recent work brings her model of “constant querying” to models of wellness and self-development for academic faculty.
