Dr. Haslerig’s scholarship nests the study of intercollegiate athletics within higher education systems, emphasizing analysis of race and equity through innovative qualitative methods. Her research has been published in journals such as the American Educational Research Journal, the Sociology of Sport Journal, the Journal of Career Development, and the International Review for the Sociology of Sport. In addition to conducting the first study of graduate student athletes’ experiences, she is currently writing a book about the racialized and political coverage embedded in college sport broadcasts.

Dr. Haslerig earned her doctorate in the Higher Education and Organizational Change program at the University of California, Los Angeles. At Swarthmore College, she completed two majors—one in the humanities and one in the social sciences. Multi- and inter-disciplinarity is fundamental to her scholarly and personal identity. While at UCLA, Dr. Haslerig also completed an NSF-funded Interdisciplinary Traineeship in Relationship Science (IRSP). Dr. Haslerig is certified as an academic life coach by Coach Training Edu, where her training focused on coaching college students. She previously worked as a faculty success program coach for the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, using a more prescribed curriculum to support pre-tenure faculty in reaching their academic goals. She applies these coaching skillsets to support academics in their holistic development throughout their career.
