Dr. Jeremy Edwards is a Lecturer for the Program in Writing and Rhetoric at Stanford University. He earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in Education from UC Santa Barbara, with an emphasis in Human Development and Cultural Studies, and his B.A. in Psychology at UCLA.
Dr. Edwards’ research centers on the Black experience in areas of higher education. Through a critical race lens, his work generally examines higher education practices and policies that impact Black student experiences. His research continues to explore different levels of access and opportunity landscapes that often exclude or ignore the histories and experiences of Black-identifying people. In his dissertation, “A Critical Race Analysis: Examining the Black College Experience at a Selective Public Minority-Serving Research Institution (MSRI),” he utilized qualitative case studies to assess relationships and support systems between Black students and highly selective four-year universities that ultimately influenced their agency and decision-making toward future career pathways. Dr. Edwards currently teaches PWR1JE: Exploring Voices: Race, Language, and Society. His recent article, “Black Pathways: Examining the History of Race Considerations in College Admissions at Highly Selective Campuses,” was published in the Journal for Critical Thought and Praxis.
