Dr. Precious Mudiwa


  • Ed.D, Idaho State University

My area of specialization is higher education administration. My primary scholarship focuses on leadership development with special emphasis on women. I am drawn to gender equity issues and how they relate to governance, access, and social justice. I am interested in investigating the unique experiences of women in academia and documenting their progress towards equity and equality in the higher education landscape in general, and particularly, in the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

My professional associations include the Oxford Round Table, Educational Policy Fellowship Program (EPFP), Women in Higher Education Conference, and the International Society for Exploring Teaching and Learning (ISETL). I am also the current co-chair of the International Faculty at Appalachian State University. I am always open and happy to be invited to schools to talk about my Zimbabwean culture. It's an experience that I thoroughly enjoy.

My teaching assignments in the Leadership in School Administration Program (LSA) include courses at the master's level such as Organizational Theory and Development, Developing School Resources, Politics and Policy in Education, and Critical Issues in Education. I also teach in the ED.S program, courses to do with change and politics.
