Dorinda Carter Andrews is the chairperson for the Department of Teacher Education. She is also an associate professor of race, culture, and equity, and a core faculty member in the African American and African Studies Program. Her research is broadly focused on racial justice and educational equity. She studies issues of racial justice in P-12 learning contexts and on college campuses, urban teacher preparation and identity development, and critical race praxis with K-12 educators. Her scholarship examines these issues by illuminating voices of youth and adults who have been historically and traditionally marginalized in schools and society. Carter Andrews is co-editor of "Contesting the Myth of a Post-Racial Era: The Continued Significance of Race in U.S. Education" (2013) and is the recipient of the 2018 Mid-Career Award from the Critical Examination of Race, Ethnicity, Class and Gender in Education Special Interest Group of the American Educational Research Association. She has given two TEDx talks, "The Consciousness Gap in Education" and "Teach Kids to be Eagles." Her work has been published in several top-tier academic journals and social media outlets.
