Karen Merson, Visiting Lecturer at Milano New School for Management and Urban Policy

Karen Merson, Visiting Lecturer at Milano New School for Management and Urban Policy.  My areas of expertise are power and structural inequality, especially the role they play in academic settings.  For 25 years I was an organizational change management consultant working with organizations to become more equitable places to work.  Beginning as an adjunct 16 years ago my passion turned towards teaching especially in the area of adult learning.  My pedagogy is grounded in principles of adult and transformational learning and I use the classroom as a laboratory to explore social justice issues.  My graduate courses concentrate on social and organizational change which includes “Making a Difference” a course on social movements and change required of all incoming Milano students.  I serve as the faculty advisor for Milano’s Students for Social Justice Student Organization and was a member of Milano’s Diversity committee.
