Dr. Alex J. Kenney

Race and Social Justice in Education Post Doctoral Fellow
Educational Psychology
GSE Room 309

Dr. Kenney is a scholar of race with an exacting focus on the experiences of Black collegians at historically and predominantly white institutions. More specifically, he investigates manifestations of anti-Blackness across individual, institutional, and environmental spheres. His research details the normalcy of anti-Blackness against the backdrop of institutional commitments to anti-racism and racial equity. Through this work, Dr. Kenney aims to illustrate how Black collegians organize, resist, and triumph while navigating oppressive forces on and off campus.
