Personal bio
Xavier J. Monroe is a PhD candidate in Educational Policy and Sociology of Education at Stanford University. His research interests include (a) the translation of policy into practice to improve student opportunities and school transformation, (b) the value of family and community partnerships with schools, and (c) issues of equity and access, particularly within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education for underrepresented minorities. Monroe studies aspects of these issues using an interdisciplinary approach, principally with historical and sociological lenses. He has conducted qualitative research in Kano, Nigeria in an effort to examine the Chinese impact on the industrial manufacturing and trade economy of the region. He also conducted research in Michigan schools that concerned pedagogical practices, inquiry based learning, school climate, organizational capacity, and student outcomes. At Stanford, Xavier has worked on mixed-method research projects that have examined research use by policymakers, the effects of summer learning programs on youth, and the importance of parental engagement and empowerment with schools. Monroe holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering and a Bachelor of Arts in History, with Minors in African Studies and Math Education, from the University of Florida. He obtained his Master of Arts in Educational Leadership & Policy from the University of Michigan and recently received his Master of Arts in Sociology from Stanford University. Xavier is currently a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow. He was a Florida Academic Scholar, Ronald E. McNair Scholar, and a Horace H. Rackham - Education Scholar Master's Fellow. Monroe has served as a U.S. House of Representatives page, elementary school instructor, Alachua County Library District Trustee, Putnam-Alachua-Levy Library Cooperative Governor, and a Board Fellow for the United Way of Washtenaw County.
