NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL
With over 20 years of experience in the field of education, Dr. Priscilla Boerger has taught students between the ages of 6 – 50+ years from wealthy neighborhoods, innercity neighborhoods, varying races and diverse cultures, and differing learning abilities. From elementary to college/university level she has witnessed, first hand, the inequalities amongst the advantaged and the disadvantaged. With a strong belief that education serves as an opportunity to not only better oneself but, to also become a citizen who positively contributes to society, she created a program to academically support the children of migrant workers in one of the wealthiest counties in the state of Florida. While the national average for retention/completion in a doctoral program is under 50%, as Program Director of the Higher Education Leadership EdD program at Regis College, Priscilla prides herself on the 96% persistence rate within the program. She strives to embed a top down mentoring approach by having the doctoral students serve as role models to the educational Master’s level students who then serve as role models for the undergraduate students. Most recently, Priscilla has focused her research and work on diversity, equity, and inclusion/social justice. She is a trained Qualified Administrator of the Intercultural Development Instrument and works with organizations on their DEI initiatives. Dr. Boerger has lectured at regional, national, and international conferences for the past 14 years on various topics that promote the whole child – at all levels. Dr. Boerger currently serves as the Department of Education Chair, EdD Program Director, and MEd Program Director at Regis College in Weston, Massachusetts.
