Dane Joseph, PhD

Associate Professor of Education




I joined George Fox's College of Education in 2015, after teaching at Pacific University during the five years prior. I fell in love with the decision-making and reasoning literature during graduate school and at an internship at Decision Sciences Institute, and have made a career exploring the art, craft, and phronesis of effective educational governance.

Much of my daily work involves constructing theories and models of change that frame complex educational needs, and I draw from a manifold of disciplines and methodological approaches. Some of my past projects included working on engineering capstone design faculty-team assessments, ethics-review board decision-making protocols, and sport coaches' playing-time policies.

My wife (Morgan), two sons (Ira and Clarence), and I live in Salem and attend Salem Alliance Church.
