Lolita Christopher Tabron received her Ph.D. in Educational Administration from Texas A&M University and currently serves as an assistant professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Denver. She is a critical quantitative researcher and education policy analyst who studies how systemic racism and other forms of oppression are perpetuated through policies, leadership practice, and statistical data. Dr. Tabron focuses her work broadly on equity and access for underrepresented communities across the PK-20 pipeline and more specifically on policies and practices affecting college access for African American youth. She is committed to helping educational leaders develop an equity-focused lens and skillset to effectively lead in diverse K-12 school settings that do not perpetuate systems of marginalization. Dr. Tabron has authored publications on race and racism in K-12 schools, critical quantitative inquiry, and policies shaping educational equity, access and opportunity in K-12 education for African American youth, their families, and other underrepresented communities. Prior to becoming a researcher, Dr. Tabron was distinguished as a Master teacher. She was also an instructional coach for urban school districts mentoring new teachers in diverse, high-stakes charter and traditional public school settings.
