Rashmi Chordiya (She| Her) is an assistant professor of public administration at Seattle University's Institute of Public Service. Her teaching and scholarship are focused on embedding social justice movement visions and frameworks into critical academic scholarship to build strong foundations for theory and praxis of liberatory justice in public service and public administration contexts.

Her peer-reviewed journal articles are published in prestigious public administration journals [Google Scholar Link Here].

In past, she has worked in India on the implementation of two major federal policies- the Corporate Social Responsibility Policy and the Higher Education Reform Policy.
