Courtney Luedke received a PhD in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, an MA in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a BA in Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Courtney Luedke’s research focuses on transforming Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) students’ experiences through anti-racist practices within higher education. Within this broader context, her research agenda focuses on a) educational access for BIPOC students across the educational pipeline; b) challenging racist institutional and organizational practices; and c) (re)imagining validating and inclusive educational environments. She adopts critical approaches to examine these issues by challenging power structures and promoting social change. As a trained sociologist and educational researcher, she uses critical qualitative research methods to explore students’ experiences in higher education environments. Luedke is a proud mamí scholar and a #ChingonaSisterScholar. She enjoys strength training and spending time in the sun and by the water. She is an avid lover of iced coffee and lattes and can be found exploring new coffee shops.
