About Brandon L. Wolfe, Ph.D

Dr. Brandon L. Wolfe is an innovative scholar practitioner with  several years of professional training and development that began during his undergraduate years at Auburn University as an engaged student leader in the Office of Diversity (now Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs). Since then, Brandon has used his knowledge of higher education best practices coupled with his passion and inspired creativity to develop, facilitate, and assess programs and campus-community wide initiatives with an emphasis on interculturalism, student and leadership development, civic engagement, and genuine problem solving. Through increased responsibilities, he has demonstrated effectiveness in policy development and analysis, institutional assessments, forecasting higher education trends, change management, strategic planning, marketing, branding, recruitment, retention, constituency building, and grant writing. As a scholar, Brandon advocates for increased institutional inclusiveness, social justice accountability, and diversity leadership through his research agenda--which explores the various relationships between organizational culture, leadership, institutional policy, and socialization in higher education. Specifically, he analyzes how these variables intersect to influence access, equity, interactions and persistence of historically underrepresented and traditionally undeserved groups across university and college campuses.
