Our response to COVID19

The QA Commons is mindful of the dramatic and transformational impact COVID-19 is having on all institutions of higher education. As an organization, we are adapting our services to support preparing graduates for the workplace that is now changing more precipitously than ever.


Dr. Megan Hartline


Dr. Megan Faver Hartline has a decade of experience connecting higher education students with real-world opportunities that enhance their classroom learning. She is currently an assistant professor of English at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where she teaches courses in professional, technical, and public writing and rhetoric. Her scholarship examines how people learn to enact local community change, analyzing the informational, material, and institutional barriers they face and the structures that enable them to connect their interests in social issues with local action.

Megan believes strongly in creating structures that help students identify and learn to use their educational experiences to reach their civic and professional goals so that they can contribute to a better world. She has worked on dozens of short- and long-term projects and programs designed to simultaneously address social inequalities and prepare students to use their classroom skills in professional and civic contexts. Megan previously served as a program director for community-engaged learning experiences at Trinity College-Hartford.


Megan earned a PhD in Rhetoric and Composition from the University of Louisville, a MA in English from St. Bonaventure University, and a BA in English from Abilene Christian University.
