Matt Mayhew is interested in how collegiate conditions, educational practices, and student experiences influence learning and democratic outcomes, including moral reasoning; pluralism; productive exchange across worldview differences; and innovation capacity.

Mellon Foundation, the Fetzer Institute and the Merrifield Family Foundation. Mayhew has published over 60 peer reviewed articles in journals, including Research in Higher Education; Journal of Higher Education; Review of Higher Education; the Journal of College Student Development; and the Journal of Moral Education. Complementing these peer-reviewed journal articles are other empirical works, including How College Affects Students: Volume 3. Mayhew has won many awards for his research and teaching. He received his doctorate from the University of Michigan in 2004.
