Dr. Carter Andrews is Assistant Dean of Equity Outreach Initiatives and an associate professor in the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. She teaches courses on racial identity development, urban education, critical multiculturalism, and critical race theory. Her research is broadly focused on issues of race, culture, and educational equity in P-12 and higher education settings. Dr. Carter Andrews is a former industrial engineer, kindergarten teacher, and high school math teacher, with experience in urban, suburban, and independent schools.

Dr. Carter Andrews explores the elusive quest for equitable education for African Americans in the United States. She uses critical race theory as an analytical framework for examining the enduring inequitable access to educational opportunities that African Americans have experienced across time and learning spaces. Dr. Carter Andrews challenges us to consider what is required to ensure academic excellence for African American students in a neoliberal, anti-Black
sociopolitical climate.
