Terrell Strayhorn

Terrell Strayhorn is an academic at heart. Professor, center director, and principal investigator, Terrell has an unapologetic commitment to conducting, marshaling, and translating scientific research for the purposes of advancing equity, removing systemic injustices, and improving the material conditions of our most vulnerable populations in society. He is President/CEO of Do Good Work Consulting Group, leading an awesome team, working with hundreds of colleges, universities, districts, and agencies in “moving the needle” on diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging outcomes for staff and students.

Terrell loves to write. He has published 12 books and over 200+ book chapters, journal articles and other scholarly publications. He believes strongly in connecting research findings to addressing broader social problems and putting research to practice, thus, he frequently writes Op-Eds, letters to editors, and blogs. He’s a contributing writer for Entrepreneur, AllBusiness, Thrive Global, and Psychology Today.

Just as much as writing, Terrell loves sharing ideas with others. He has given hundreds of invited keynotes and lectures at 2000+ universities, schools, companies, churches, and conferences across the globe. What drives this passion is the ability to connect his research and talents to address some of the world’s greatest problems, especially in education.

On a more personal note, Terrell is an accomplished musician, vegan 🌿, and runner.
