Introduction

Dr. KiMi Wilson joined the Charter College of Education in August 2016 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. He has been awarded the Concha Delgado Gaitan Council of Anthropology and Educaton Presidential fellowship for the 2016-2017 academic year. 

Dr. Wilson's research has been examining mathematics and science identity development for African American students in K-12 public schooling, as it relates to STEM education and participation. His published works have focused on identity development of African American males pursuing STEM in higher education, and teacher identity development in mathematics. Dr. Wilson anticipates to expand his research to focus on African American students mathematics and science learning in the elementary grades.

KiMi is a former public school teacher in California with experience as an elementary teacher, a secondary math and science teacher, and experience working with pre- and in-service teachers.  KiMi is passionate about eliminating educational inequities in STEM for all students, specifically African American students who have been marginalized as it relates to STEM majors, careers and participation.
