Alexis Brooke Redding is an advanced doctoral student and Presidential Scholar at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). Before coming to HGSE, she spent a decade as an educator and college counselor in Switzerland. Her professional experience led to research on the psycho-social implications of high-stakes college admission. This work is published in the Journal of College Admission, Ethics & Behavior, and Independent School Magazine.
Redding worked with Harvard College on their new academic integrity initiative and now researches college student ethical development and honor codes as part of her doctoral dissertation. She recently received a fellowship to study Dr. William Perry's archives at the Harvard Bureau of Study Counsel. In this work, she is able to compare how students from the past half-century grappled with similar issues of achievement pressure and ethical dilemmas that she documents among students today.
She remains engaged in undergraduate student life at Harvard College through serving on the Board of Freshman Advisers. On behalf of the Freshman Dean's Office, she also serves as a faculty leader for Community Conversations and as a facilitator for the Reflecting on Your Life Program.
Redding completed her Ed.M. degree in Human Development & Psychology from HGSE (2010) and received an A.B. from Harvard College (1998). She also holds a Graduate Certificate in College Counseling from UCLA (2008).
