During her career as a social justice educator, Victoria Brockett has served as the Assistant Director of the Center for Urban and Regional Excellence at Indiana University Northwest and Coordinator of the Northwest Indiana Race Relations Council. In recent years, she has appeared on Lakeshore Public Television as a Lakeshore Focus panelist on facing racism in Northwest Indiana and has presented papers at annual meetings for the Midwest Sociological Society and Association for Humanist Sociology. Her work has been published in Race, Gender & Class, Critical Sociology, The Humanist Sociologist, and the Routledge Handbook on Poverty in the United States.


A self-advocacy philosophy lies at the heart of Brockett’s advising and assessment practice. Through the cultivation of self-advocacy in all teacher candidates, she hopes to foster a culture of empowerment where every student has access to the opportunities and resources necessary to make informed decisions as their vocations unfold.
