Jonathan Gordon received his B.Sc. in Psychology and History from the University of Toronto and his M.A. and Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He has worked for the University System of Georgia (USG) studying distance learning programs, and later developed a database to collect unit-level student financial aid information from USG institutions. He joined the Georgia Tech in 2002, and has worked on many assessment, research, and evaluation projects, including the measurement of student learning outcomes in general education, longitudinal research on the effects of undergraduate engineering research experiences on minority enrollment in graduate school, the impact of mentoring on the careers of underrepresented Ph.D. recipients, the evaluation of the Georgia Tech International and Research Plans, and the Georgia Tech Climate Survey. His research interests include measuring the impact of co-curricular experiences (such as internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research) on retention, progression, and career outcomes, as well as the ways in which students acquire intercultural competence through their curricular and co-curricular activities.
