Terrance L. Green, Ph.D.



Racial Justice Leader

Made in Detroit

Professional Background: I have spent the last 15+ years in education in roles ranging from a high school science teacher to a university professor. Currently, during the day (and honestly during too many nights), I am an Associate Professor of Educational Leadership and Policy at the University of Texas at Austin. I co-direct the Texas Principals Leadership Academy. As a professor, I research and help to prepare pre-service principals to “praxis” racially just, anti-racist, and equity-focused school and community leadership. I have a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a M.Ed. from the University of Kentucky, and a B.S. from Kentucky State University (a Historically Black University). I am deeply humbled to have received some national awards for my work and have had my work featured in some dope outlets.

Who am I: I love radically reimagining and working to create a world that is racially just, especially for Black people. I approach this work with a deep sense of radical care, grace, and honesty. I am a father of two brilliant and beautiful Black daughters and a life partner and husband to an amazing Black woman. I love Black people, friends that have my back, deep conversations, watching re-runs of A Different World and Martin. I also love teaching and communicating, learning (I could still be in school, that’s how much I love learning), and critical digital marketing. So I teach, write academic articles, op-eds, and books (I’m working on one right now). My faith is central to me and I love me some 2Pac. And last, but not least, I was made in Detroit (what up doe!).
