As liaison to VCU's Department of Focused Inquiry, Stout collaborates with Focused Inquiry faculty to provide effective course-integrated instruction, online tools and resources, research assistance, and other services for students taking UNIV 111, 112, and 200. A teacher at heart, Stout is interested in pedagogy and connecting with students to assist them with their research, succeed academically and enhance their college experience.

Holding a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Mary Washington and a Master of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Stout is committed to diversity and equity initiatives, focusing her academic scholarship on inclusivity, anti-racism, affirmation of LGBTQ identities, and intersectional feminism in libraries and academia. Other research interests include fresh approaches to information fluency, assessment of library instruction, and interdepartmental partnerships in teaching. A lifelong learner, Stout aims to inspire an attitude of curiosity and exploration of ideas in students and colleagues.
