Portrait of Hilary Houlette
she, her, hers

Hilary is a doctoral student in the Higher Education program. She earned a B.A. of Arts in International Studies from the University of Denver and a Master of Education in Higher Education from Loyola University Chicago. Following graduate school, Hilary worked at Huron Consulting Group, focusing on research administration and institutional compliance. Blending her academic and professional interests, Hilary’s research explores the ways in which federal and institutional policies governing research either promote or limit global engagement and international collaboration. She is also interested in assessing the broader impact that research policies have on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in higher education. In Hilary’s spare time, she enjoys swimming, baking bread, hiking, and playing the recorder.
