D-L Stewart to speak at Denver Conference

Dr. D-L Stewart is Professor and Chair of the Higher Education Department in the Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver which occupies the ancestral and present day homelands of the Arapaho, Cheyenne, and Ute Nations and peoples and was founded by John Evans during whose gubernatorial term the U.S. Army perpetrated the Sand Creek Massacre. Over the course of his faculty career, he has focused most intently on the history and philosophy of higher education and the institutional systems and structures that affect the experiences, growth, development, and success of racially minoritized and queer and trans* students in historically white postsecondary institutions. Dr. Stewart examines these topics through intersectional, critical, and poststructural frameworks that interrogate the multiple manifestations of whiteness and settler colonialism in U.S. higher education. In addition to more than 150 invited and refereed presentations and over 90 journal publications and book chapters, Dr. Stewart is also an author or editor of four books related to multicultural student services, contexts and opportunities for LGBTQ+ students, history of Black collegians in private liberal arts colleges, and the use of critical frameworks in student development theorizing. Dr. Stewart has also received numerous awards for teaching, research, and service, including the 2021 Contribution to Knowledge Award from ACPA-College Student Educators International, the 2021 Margaret B. Hazaleus Award from Colorado State University for mentoring women faculty, and the 2019 Mildred García Award for Exemplary Scholarship from the Council on Ethnic Participation in the Association for the Study of Higher Education. Dr. Stewart is currently an ACPA Senior Scholar and is now the 2022 Past President for the Association for the Study of Higher Education. In 2020, Dr. Stewart founded Radical Insights Speaking, Consulting, and Training LLC whose mission is to transform, initiate, generate, equip, and reinvigorate (T.I.G.E.R.) leaders and organizations toward greater equity and justice.
