Dr. Hampton joined the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at TCU in the spring of 2014 and has more than 10 years of experience teaching in higher education. Her research and teaching interests focus on critical race theory as an analytical tool for understanding school inequity. Her current work examines the hidden curriculum within educational institutions and her scholarship seeks to better understand the role of race in U.S. schools and society. In the fall of 2016, Dr. Hampton joined the John V. Roach Honors College. She is currently teaching the Honors Colloquium course, “Engaging Difference: Race, Color, Culture: A Context for Understanding U.S. Diversity in the 21st Century” as well as a lower division cultural visions course on U.S. Schooling and American Society. In the fall of 2017, she will be teaching the introductory course for the newly approved Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies major, CRES 10103. Dr. Hampton is excited to serve as one of the core faculty members for CRES and welcomes the opportunity to introduce TCU undergraduates to the interdisciplinary field of comparative race and ethnic studies.
Faculty Bystander Intervention Program Coordinator
Nada Elias-Lambert is the Faculty Bystander Intervention Program Coordinator with the Koehler Center. She is working in partnership with the Koehler Center to develop and implement a faculty bystander intervention program (FBIP) at TCU. The goal of the FBIP is to provide a sustainable way for faculty to learn about bystander intervention techniques as well as to implement the Faculty Bystander Intervention workshops with colleagues in their academic units. Nada will work with the Koehler Center to continue offering Faculty Bystander Intervention Workshops and Faculty Bystander Intervention Train-the-Trainer Workshops. Nada will also observe and assist trained faculty as they facilitate Faculty Bystander Intervention workshops with colleagues in their academic units. Nada will also conduct an exploratory, qualitative, focus group study with trained faculty to assess faculty perceptions and motivations for involvement in the FBIP.
