Dr. Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy
October 20, 2022 | 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
ABOUT THIS SESSION: Over the last couple of years, two enduring pandemics—COVID-19 and racial injustice–have impacted the education landscape and the emotional fabric of our country. From “Zoom fatigue” to racialized stress, the pandemics have required school counselors to address mounting numbers of traumatized students and longstanding issues of racial and educational injustice. Dr. Holcomb-McCoy will inspire counselors with a solid call to action. Climbing the hill of racial justice is steep; but school counselors can get to the top by acting with courage, love, and determination.
SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Cheryl Holcomb-McCoy is in her sixth year as Dean of the School of Education at American University. Previous to this role, she served as Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs (central administration) and Vice Dean of Academic Affairs (in the School of Education) at Johns Hopkins University. Also at Johns Hopkins, she was an associate professor at the University of Maryland College Park and Director of the School Counseling Program at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.
Professional colleagues have recognized her with many awards for outstanding multicultural/diversity research, excellence in teaching, and exemplar service. She served as a Faculty Lilly Fellow at the University of Maryland and in 2016, she was selected as an American Counseling Association (ACA) Fellow for her significant contributions in scientific achievement and teaching. While at Johns Hopkins she developed and implemented the $25M Faculty Diversity Initiative and is the founder of three signature initiatives: AU’s Summer Institute on Education, Equity and Justice (SIEEJ), the Center for Postsecondary Readiness and Success, and the AU Teacher Pipeline Project, a partnership with the District of Columbia Public Schools and Friendship Charter Schools. The second edition to her book, School Counseling to Close the Achievement Gap: A Social Justice Framework for Success will be available this fall.
Because of her expertise in college advising and counseling, Dr. Holcomb-McCoy was selected to participate as a consultant to the Obama Administration’s Reach Higher Initiative. In July 2014, she was one of the plenary speakers at the White House’s Summit on Higher Education held at Harvard University.
Cheryl will also be presenting a breakout sessions.
October 21, 2022 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:50 p.m.
