Research Interests

Nienhusser's research focuses on the implementation of state and institutional policies that impact underserved minority students’ postsecondary education access. Specifically, it examines how education institutional agents (e.g., systems-level officers, higher education administrators, and high school staff) implement state and institutional policies that shape these students’ college access. His scholarship focuses on the Latino and undocumented student populations.
