Joy M. Scott-Carrol, PhD, earned her bachelor of science degree in psychology from Creighton University-Omaha, Nebraska, master of science in counseling education from the University of Wisconsin, and doctorate of philosophy in educational leadership and policy studies/higher education administration from Loyola University-Chicago. Her dissertation research on early-identified Black college students concluded that the academic achievements, as measured by comparable high school to college grade point averages, declined absent support systems such as enrollment in honors program and continual accountability from parents and academic/support counseling.

Joy has both national and international university teaching and administrative experience. Since the late 1980s, she has presented at national and international conferences (e.g., NAGC, AERA, and WCGTC), published articles related to gifted/talented learners, and mentored numerous graduate students. Her last teaching position, about which she is most proud as a seasoned academician, is visiting professor in the School of Education at the University of the Witwatersrand-Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2007, she co-founded the International Gifted Education Teacher-Development Network (IGET-Network, LLC). She is a member of the National Association of Gifted Children and the World Council for Gifted and Talented Children.
