Student Success has always been Dr. Hindman’s goal, especially the success of under-prepared, first generation, and (the new majority) under-represented students. During her more than thirty years working in Higher Education, she contributed in myriad ways to student success: teaching; training teachers; developing curricula and programs; developing and implementing assessment plans and instruments; directing faculty development and grant programs; publishing scholarly articles; editing and reviewing articles for scholarly journals.
Though originally from Rochester NY, Dr. Jane E. Hindman came to CUNY from the Southwest in 2012. She earned her PhD in Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English from the University of Arizona where she also received Masters degrees in ESL and Literature. Tenured at San Diego State University in 2001, Dr. Hindman was an Associate Professor in the Rhetoric and Writing Studies Department where she taught methods of teaching composition, feminist and critical pedagogies, rhetorical theory, research methods, feminist discourse, and composition theory as well as developmental, technical, academic, and expository writing.
Her various articles related to pedagogy and academic professional practice have been published in Journal of Basic Writing, JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, and Writing Program Administrator as well as edited collections. Her scholarly work which focuses on professional critical literacy and “embodied writing” has been published on multiple occasions in JAC and College English; she also served as guest editor of a special issue of College English devoted to personal writing. She’s served as a journal reviewer for College English, College Composition and Communication, JAC, and Community Literacy Journal. More recently she served as the Retention Specialist at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe NM; at IAIA she initiated and/or collaborated on several high impact learning strategies, taught developmental writing, coordinated the tutoring center, and was the project director for the Walmart Student Success Collaborative grant.
