Dr. Stebleton teaches both undergrads and grads with over 25 years of experience at a range of college and universities, including three plus years at Inver Hills Community College (where he served on the counseling faculty). He has worked in academic advising for approximately nine years (at the University of Minnesota-TC College of Liberal Arts and at Metropolitan State University). At Metropolitan State University, many of his students were adult, non-traditional, students of color. During this time, he worked as an adjunct faculty member teaching courses in Human Services and Career-Life planning.
His current research interests on college student engagement and success issues, with a focus on historically underserved students (including recent immigrant students). More specifically, he is analyzing issues related to sense of belonging and satisfaction of students who attend large, public universities. Furthermore, he is interested in the influence of high-impact educational practices (such as first-year experiences and learning communities) on the engagement of undergraduates.
