Brett Stachler joined the Office of the Dean in the Herberger Institute of Design and the Arts in February 2018. In his capacity, Brett is responsible for the first-year experience for Herberger students working with the residential community and Creative Fellows, working with the Herberger Institute Student Council to develop pathways to advocate for all Herberger Institute students, and developing new methods of engagement for students with minortized identitites. Brett serves as a resource for Herberger students and first-year students in particular by working with the Creative Fellows to develop co-curricular programming outside of the classroom that engages the creativity of students, connecting students to the resources available in Herberger and ASU, and developing initiatives that will further the community development of first-year students on and off-campus.
Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Brett holds a Master's of Education in Higher Education from Loyola University Chicago and a Bachelor's of Psychology from Roosevelt University. For the past five years, he has held roles in Roosevelt University's Center for Student Involvement, Northwestern University's Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, and the University of Chicago's Office of Multicultural Student Affairs. Across his professional roles, Brett has developed a commitment to social justice and liberation through his advocacy for marginalized communities. His research interest include critical social theories and college student development, intersectional climate assessments, intergroup dialogue, curricular diversity requirements in higher education, and leadership identity formation for Queer and Trans students. Recently, Brett co-authored research linking how academic persistence towards an undergraduate degree is impacted by negative campus climates for queer-spectrum college students. In addition to all the above, Brett has the wit and sense of humor that will one day land him a job working at The Onion or developing Gieco commercials, and throughly enjoys all the wonderful outdoor opproutinities that come with living in Arizona.
