Dr. Amelia King-Kostelac
Board of Directors
Amelia has worn many professional hats over the years, but the unifying theme of her work has been commitment to supporting equitable, culturally-sustaining educational opportunities for both youth and adult learners. For the past several years, she has worked as a researcher and mentor within the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Department of Environmental Science and Ecology, where she coordinates an NSF-funded program focused on supporting minoritized students’ success via holistic mentoring, public science communication training, and integration of habitual writing across the curriculum. She studies and writes about how students’ educational experiences can relate to development of a sense of belonging within educational spaces.
