Marcus Winters, assistant professor in UCCS’s College of Education, has been named one of the top 200 university-based scholars who shape public discussions of education, ranking 181 in the 2015 RHSU Edu Scholar Public Influence rankings. The list of qualifying scholars includes a qualitative component, though the actual scores are composed entirely of quantitative metrics.
The metrics recognize university-based scholars in the U.S. who are contributing most substantially to public debates about education. The rubric reflects both a scholar’s body of academic work — encompassing the breadth and influence of their scholarship — and their footprint on the public discourse last year.
The rankings were compiled by Frederick M. Hess, director of education policy, American Enterprise Institute, and frequent contributor to Education Week.
