Dr. Chaddrick James-Gallaway received his Ph.D. in Higher Education with a concentration in the Sociology of Education from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. A proud community college alumnus, he earned his AA from Delta College and his BA from the University of Michigan.
Dr. James-Gallaway’s research broadly examines race, racism, anti-Black racism and the racialized experiences of Students of Color across P-20 educational contexts. As a scholar and practitioner, his expertise in cross-racial intergroup dialogues focuses particularly on how People of Color respond to racial issues and how white students engage the experiences of People of Color within educational settings. He is a qualitative researcher and critical race theorist, who seeks to advance understanding of cross-racial interactions to better support Students of Color at historically white institutions.
As an affiliate of the Office of Community College Research and Leadership (OCCRL), he is also focused on improving the transition to and through college for historically marginalized groups. In this capacity, Dr. James-Gallaway has authored policy briefs on, designed, and implemented racially conscious professional development trainings on racial microaggressions, addressing racialized community college climates, and intergroup dialogue for faculty, staff, and administrators.
