Michelle Navarre Cleary is an Associate Professor, Associate Dean, Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment; and Writing Coordinator at the School for New Learning.

She has published scholarly articles in peer-reviewed journals including Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy and WPA: Writing Program Administration. Her current research is motivated by two questions: How do adult students develop as writers when they return to school? How can the teaching of writing to adult students be improved?
