It was the first paper of its kind to utilize critical legal scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw’s restrictive and expansive views of equality framework to measure excellence in college teaching.
Dr. Glenda Musoba and Caroline Wekullo presented a poster titled “Outsourcing in Higher Education: The Known and unknown about the practice.” Using literature, they examined the theoretical frameworks underlying the practice of outsourcing in higher education, to establish what is known and unknown and whether the practice of outsourcing is effective in providing the public good.
