The American Educational Research Association (AERA) has selected Bryan McKinley Jones Brayboy, President’s Professor of Indigenous Education and Justice in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University, as a 2018 AERA Fellow.

Brayboy is among 10 other new fellows announced by AERA on Feb. 21.

AERA, the largest national research organization specifically focused on the scientific study of education and learning, established its fellowship program in 2007 to recognize and honor scholars who make substantial research achievements. The 2018 fellows were nominated by their peers, selected by the AERA Fellows Committee, and approved by AERA’s elected governing body.

Brayboy’s research focuses on the role of race and diversity in higher education, and the experiences of indigenous students, staff, and faculty in institutions of higher education. He has been a visiting and noted scholar in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Norway. His work has been supported by the U.S. Department of Education; the National Science Foundation; the Ford, Mellon, Kellogg and Spencer Foundations; and several other private and public foundations and organizations. He and his team have, over the past 17 years, prepared over 155 Native teachers to work in American Indian communities and over 15 American Indian PhDs.

At ASU, Brayboy is senior adviser to the president, director of the Center for Indian Education, associate director of the School of Social Transformation, and co-editor of the Journal of American Indian Education. From 2007 to 2012, he was a visiting President’s Professor of Indigenous Education at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Brayboy will be inducted along with the other 2018 fellows on Saturday, April 14, at the 2018 AERA Annual Meeting in New York City.
