Bach Mai Dolly Nguyen is an assistant professor of education at Oregon State University. Her research examines the relationship between social categorization and inequality in education, with particular attention to racial and organizational classifications. These foci have manifested in studies on minority serving institutions (MSIs), ethnic stratification, and organizational behavior. Her research has been published in American Educational Research Journal, Review of Research in Education and Review of Higher Education and is currently supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Spencer Foundation. Dolly is currently writing her first book (under contract with University of Chicago Press) on how higher education organizations at the intersection of two MSI designations navigate racialized tensions, enact widespread cultural ideals, or “myths,” and give life to unique organizational frames of racial equity.
