Dr. Bryan K. Hotchkins, Presenter

Dr. Hotchkins is one of the rising intellectual vices in the nation on the subject of navigating cultural difference. Having struggled to manage his own path, Dr. Hotchkins shares not only his personal story, but also his research, which examines how students of color achieve academic success by negotiating racial and gender identities. While he primarily coaches students of color about successfully graduating from high school and college, he has counsel for teachers, administrators, faulty and parents who want to better understand how to empower their students to persist.

Bryan has been an activist and champion for social justice since his days as a youth when he started Oklahoma’s first magazine for Black youth called Hip Hop Headz. His desire to create communal opportunities led to The V(i)llage (2013), a leadership development bridge program for self-identifying Black and inclusion-minded students.

Over the past few years, he has actively worked with the University of Arizona Medical School, University of Utah, Rowland Hall St Mark’s School, Texas Tech University and the National Black Graduate Student Association. As a professor he is the author of published educational articles where he problematizes how African American males navigate racial classroom microaggressions.

Dr. Hotchkins is currently an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University in the Educational Psychology and Leadership Department. He has a PhD in Educational Leadership and Policy from the University of Utah and also holds degrees from University of Oklahoma and Southern Methodist University.
