Mary E. Dilworth will lead a discussion that probes beneath the surface to recognize and explain how the current generation of teachers and those of color, in particular, have a distinctly different mindset than their baby boomer and generation X predecessors; what habits of mind and experiences contribute to their understanding of quality teaching and student learning; what constitutes good and useful preparation and practice; and what processes and policies accommodate cultural responsiveness and allow for all students to meet their full potential. She will be joined by some of the chapter authors of her new book, Millennial Teachers of Color


Mary E. Dilworth‘s career is centered on teacher quality and preparation, with a keen focus on racial/ethnic and linguistic diversity and equity issues. She led a host of education research, policy, and program initiatives as vice-president of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and senior vice-president of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education. Dr. Dilworth currently serves as an advisor to a range of non-profit education organizations and institutions. Recently, Dilworth was a co-principal investigator for a National Science Foundation (NSF-DR12) project designed to recruit, prepare, license and employ middle and high school science teachers from under-represented groups. In addition, she served as a visiting professor and director of the Center for Urban Education at the University of the District of Columbia. Earlier in her career she was a research fellow with Howard University’s Institute for the Study of Educational Policy (ISEP) and wrote the book Teachers’ Totter: a Report on Teacher Certification Issues widely recognized as heightening the national discourse on the disparate impact of licensing tests on under-represented groups.

Dr. Dilworth is editor of the book, Millennial Teachers of Color, scheduled for release in spring 2018 with Harvard Education Press. She has written, edited and contributed to scores of scholarly books, articles, policy and research reports and essays.  Her recent contributions include: a 2014 NEA report, Time for a Change: Diversity in Teaching Revisited; a chapter in the 2013 International Guide to Student Achievement; an entry in James A. Banks’ Encyclopedia of Diversity in Education (2012); and the 2012 article, Historically Black Colleges and Universities in Teacher Education Reform in the Journal of Negro Education.

Throughout her career, Mary E. Dilworth has held a number of elected and appointed positions on boards and commissions including: the American Educational Research Association (AERA); the Educational Testing Service (ETS); the National Education Association (NEA); the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the Ford Foundation. Dilworth received her a BA degree in elementary education, a MA degree in student personnel administration in higher education from Howard University and a doctorate from Catholic University of America in higher education administration.
