Jamie Utt is a doctoral student in Teaching, Learning, and Sociocultural Studies at the University of Arizona where he studies the intersections of race and schooling. His research focuses on the role of White teachers' racial identity on their teaching practice and on the racialized role of police in schools.
Since 2004, Jamie has worked as a consultant, educator, and trainer across the United States to build safer, more inclusive, and more justice-centered communities. He often works with K-12 schools doing equity consulting and works with colleges and universities on issues of sexual violence prevention. In his time at the University of Arizona, he has co-created ASAP: Advocating Sexual Assault Prevention, a four-tier program for prevention of sexual violence in institutions of higher education. Jamie is also the Founder and Director of Education at CivilSchools where he designed a comprehensive, research-based program for actually preventing and responding to bullying behavior in 6-12 schools. CivilSchools is currently being implemented in schools all around the United States to empower every member of school communities with the tools necessary to build positive school culture where bullying no longer takes place.
