Heading to Iowa

Posted by reyjunco on April 1, 2014 in Commentary |

Iowa State Twitter Bird - Rey JuncoI’m incredibly excited to announce that I’ve accepted a position as an associate professor in the School of Education at Iowa State University starting this summer. I’ll be teaching and advising students in the Student Affairs graduate program.

Many of you who follow this blog know that I started a new position in the Purdue University Libraries this past year. I have enjoyed my time at Purdue– the Libraries faculty are a dynamic and interesting bunch. My explorations of information literacy from an information science perspective will forever influence my research. Not to mention that Purdue is a great institution (and a really cool college town).

I have often heard from student affairs professionals who want to begin a Ph.D. to focus on social media/emerging technologies but have hesitated because no programs focus on such issues. Now is your chance to come work with me! Not only will I be continuing my research on how new technologies influence student development, but I’m joining an already impressive and vibrant community of scholars at Iowa State. We’ve also got two new assistant professors joining us in the fall whose research focuses greatly on social justice issues.

Don’t shame youth who post racist tweets, educate them

Posted by reyjunco on November 19, 2012 in Commentary |

Recently, Jezebel engaged in the public shaming of teens who posted racist tweets after the election. The doxxing began on the comment thread to the original “racist teens” post and then the Jezebel writer ran with the mob mentality. Now, I’m not trying to give those teens who posted the racist tweets a “pass;” however, the way […]

The ethics of Facebook-stalking university applicants

Posted by reyjunco on November 8, 2012 in Commentary, Research |

Recently, Kaplan Test Prep released data from a survey showing how college admissions officers check applicant profiles in order to make admissions decisions. This isn’t a new phenomenon: since 2008, I’ve been answering questions about whether residence life, judicial affairs, and other university departments should monitor their students’ Facebook accounts. Here are some reasons why […]
