About Muhammad Khalifa, Ph.D.

Dr. Muhammad Khalifa is the Robert H. Beck Professor of Ideas in Education at the University of Minnesota. Formerly a school leader, he is now a leading expert on culturally responsive school leadership and anti-oppressive education. Through the newly established Culturally Responsive School leadership Institute, he helps school leaders work with communities to promote schools that look deeper than "achievement gaps," and more at the humanization of students in school. He has worked with heads of governments and schools in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East to reform education, but is most noted for his work in urban and suburban school districts across the U.S. He leads equity reform in schools by performing Equity Audits, and helps districts use equity audits to close gaps and promote the humanization of minoritized youth.
