Margaret Grogan, Ph.D., dean of the Attallah College of Educational Studies, has once again been recognized as one of the top 200 scholars and influencers in the field of education. Dean Grogan’s inclusion on the RHSU Edu-Scholar Public Influence Rankings has not wavered for eight years. Those eligible for recognition are US university-based academics who mainly focus on education related issues and tens of thousands apply each year.

The RHSU selection committee generates the list using scores from nine categories that amount to a maximum possible score of 200, according to the American Enterprise Institute. Taken into account are each applicant’s Google Scholar Score, book points, highest Amazon ranking, syllabus points, education press mentions, web mentions, newspaper mentions, congressional record mentions, and Kred Score (based on an individual’s Twitter account’s mentions, retweets, and replies, if applicable).

Among the scholars that have been recognized in the 2019 rankings arefaculty affiliated with Stanford University and Harvard University. All those acknowledged are active employers of public discourse and impact on education practice and policy.

“It’s a great honor to be listed among so many top scholars in my field,” said Dean Grogan.
