Emerson LaCroix

BA (Guelph), MA (Waterloo)

I am a PhD student in the department of Sociology & Legal Studies at the University of Waterloo. My research investigates the institutionalization of experiential education in Ontario universities. Using organizational theory and qualitative methods I am analyzing the impact this process has on the professional logics of organizational actors, and the broader implications of shifting institutional logics in the field of higher education. Complimentary research interests include social theory, work and organizations, and qualitative research methods.

My doctoral research is funded by a SSHRC-CGS Doctoral Scholarship.

My recent article Organizational Complexities of Experiential Education: Institutionalization and Logic Work in Higher Education can be found open-access at the Journal of Experiential Education
