Cheyenne Ross (She/Her)Ph.D. Student (2023 Cohort)

Cheyenne Ross (she/her) earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from St. John’s University and a Master of Arts in Higher Education and Student Affairs from New York University. She maintains the position that words and actions are compatible — neither being useful without the other. Thus, bringing an inquisitive personality, as well as a passion for radical transformation, she seeks to engage in research that confronts higher education’s historical connections to slavery and dispossession to further decolonization and support reparative justice efforts.

For Cheyenne, the question is not how do we make better what already exists, but instead, how might we collectively create something right. Furthermore, it is her perspective that those answers are not limited to academia, but can, and even must, be developed in collaboration with local communities.
