About Brandon L. Wolfe, Ph.D

Dr. Brandon L. Wolfe is an innovative higher education administrator, scholar, social justice advocate, and future chief diversity office 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 known as the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs). Since then, Brandon has used his knowledge of best practices and creativity to develop small to large scale programs ranging from educational discussions/workshops/training centered around diversity and inclusion strategies to large scale conferences and cultural entertainment initiatives that unites the campus and its surrounding communities. As a scholar, Brandon uses his writing to advocate for increased institutional diversity and social justice through his research--which analyzes the various intersections between organizational culture, leadership development, inclusion strategies, and educational socialization on college campuses. Specifically, he explores how these variables influence access, equity, and persistence of minorities in higher education. Since earning his PhD in 2010, Brandon continues to commit himself by presenting his research at local, state, regional, and national conferences while publishing and providing service on a consultant basis.
