Cathryn Bennett

she/her/hers Interim Director of Global Off-Campus Initiatives , Community and Justice Studies, Guilford College

My work prioritizes expanding educational equity, access, and community-university advocacy through educational research in localized (international/comparative) higher education. I pursue these equity commitments in higher education with first generation to college, refugee, newcomer, and historically minoritized college students’ strengths, assets, and knowledge amid interlocking systems of oppression (Patricia Hill Collins). I aim to cultivate anti-oppression and anti-racism to mitigate the structurally harmful effects of exclusion.
