Ozan Jaquette is an assistant professor of higher education in the UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies.  His research specializations are organizational behavior, enrollment management, higher education finance, and higher education policy.  His research program analyzes how postsecondary institutions change behavior to generate enrollment from desired student populations, with a focus on the tensions between the enrollment pursuits of access, academic prestige, and revenue generation.  His past research analyzes the causes and consequences of out-of-state enrollment growth by public universities. His current research analyzes recruiting behavior by colleges and universities, utilizing “data science” methodologies and FOIA requests as data collection strategies.
