Bryan Hotchkins

Bryan K. Hotchkins is an Assistant Professor of Higher Education in the department of Educational Psychology and Leadership, and a Faculty Fellow for the Institute for Inclusive Excellence at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.

A critical race pedagogue, Dr. Hotchkins studies the relationship between identity development and organization climate. More specifically, his research problematizes issues pertaining to the intersection of leadership, activism and access across K-20 educational contexts. Dr. Hotchkins' research is guided by questions related to how institutional environments and racial constructions influence student, faculty and administrator involvement on campus. With nearly 10 publications, twenty-one academic paper presentations and invited lectures to his credit since 2014, he is actively committed to using research to amplify the voices of marginalized people while validating their experiential knowledge(s). Ultimately, Dr. Hotchkins strives to utilize The V(i)llage leadership bridge program, which he co-founded in Utah (2013), to continue creating cultural and academic college pathway opportunities for aspiring Black collegians.

Bryan earned his doctorate in Educational Leadership and Policy from the University of Utah.
