As the Director for the Women in Politics Certificate Program and Political Science lecturer, Danley-Scott's goal is to provide training and mentorship opportunities for women wanting to participate in politics, policymaking, and governing. Her work for the CWPPP includes oversight of emBOLDenHER, a campaign training program that offers beginner workshops as well as deeper dive workshops and panels on advanced topics. She also organizes Pioneering Politics, which brings officeholders and political appointees to campus to speak with students about jobs, elected positions, and appointments within government. Danley-Scott also serves as the Faculty Lead for the Legacy Leaders Scholars Program of the Center for Student Leadership, which focuses on preparing students to be leaders in politics, nonprofits, and business.
Prior to teaching at Texas Woman's University, Danley-Scott taught political science at California State University San Bernardino for four years and served for two years as the coordinator of the Teaching Assistant Development Program at U.C. Riverside, where she oversaw teacher training, pedagogical workshops, and state and federal TA training.
Danley-Scott received her PhD from the University of California, Riverside, in political science, with an emphasis on elections, socialization, public opinion, and the pedagogy of political science. Her journal articles and conference presentations examine stereotype threat in the political science classroom, assessment of student learning, political socialization, the media, women in politics, and the pedagogy of political science. Danley-Scott has taught classes on US Government, Texas Government, the Presidency, Congress, State and Local Politics, Women in Politics, the Media, Elections, and Public Policy.
