About

Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Everitt joined the Department of Sociology at Loyola in 2009 after earning his Ph.D. in sociology at Indiana University. His research focuses on the relationships between institutional and cultural rules for people’s behavior, and the routine interactions and sense-making that people experience in their everyday lives. He analyzes these relationships in a variety of organizational settings, focusing chiefly on educational institutions as well as work and occupations. Substantively, he studies professional socialization processes among schoolteachers, including how they transition into teaching through formal training, and how teachers develop over the course of their careers. He pays particular attention to the ways that teachers come to understand accountability policies, and how they learn to balance the institutional demands of their work environment with the very unpredictable and dynamic interactions they have with students in their classrooms. As such, his work has implications for policy implementation, as well as broader understandings of how institutional rules get challenged, modified, and reproduced by people doing things in their daily lives and making sense of the things that they do.

Dr. Everitt's current research explores the ways that people's sense-making in specific institutional settings contributes to the reproduction of various forms of social inequality, especially those surrounding gender and sexuality.

While he studies teachers in his scholarship, his own teaching is also of central importance to his work. Dr. Everitt teaches a variety of classes at Loyola (see list below), including our department's unique graduate seminar preparing doctoral students to design, prep, and teach their own undergraduate courses.
