OLPD graduate student spotlighted on CEHD web site

Frank Blalark focuses on efficiency. At his job as director of the University's Office of the Registrar, that means the efficiency of graduation rates and degree production.

Blalark is also a graduate student and a dad. With five chapters of his dissertation written, he has never stopped working fulltime.

It's probably not surprising that his dissertation is about efficiency--specifically in public research universities. What surprises even Blalark, a first-generation college student, is that he's in a Ph.D. program at all.
