M.A., University of California, Riverside
Ph.D. University of California, Merced in progress

Joel Beutel has a MA from UC Riverside in Economics and is currently finishing a PhD in Social & Cognitive Science at UC Merced. He has put many a cocktail party compatriot to sleep with discussions on the policy implications of his research on college and community relations and development.

When he is not teaching, he is often to be found working with one of his seven children on keeping his fleet of aging Volvo' s alive. His children range in age from 3 to 19 years old and the cars range from 42-47 years old. When his Volvo's are not running you will find him parking at Delta in a rental car from time to time.

Joel looks forward to meeting and working with all of you and helping to make Delta a 'cool' and respectable place for our students to learn and grow.
