                       Dr. Hunter R. Boylan: Narrative
        Boylan has dedicated his professional life to the field of post-secondary
developmental education. Beginning his career with teaching developmental classes,
training tutors, and administering grants, Boylan moved on to research, editing scholarly
journals, and leading the field’s main professional organization. He now trains
developmental instructors, continues his research, and consults with school districts and
education departments across the world.

        Boylan uses research to combat the myths about remedial education that have
given the field its status as the “red-headed stepchild” of higher education. As more and
more four-year institutions phase out developmental courses, Boylan is working with
community colleges to provide solid research to educators working in developmental
programs so that these programs receive the support needed from administration and
governing boards.

         Boylan consistently calls for educators working in developmental programs to
assess their programs and use the information to improve policies and procedures. To
this end, he emphasizes the need for research using accepted methodology.
