Dr. Wilson Kwamogi Okello
Dr. Wilson Kwamogi Okello is a tenure-track assistant professor in the Watson College of Education at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

Dr. Okello’s performance work engages Black feminist embodied and creative methodologies to think about the health and survival of Black people in the afterlife of white supremacy. His work is published in venues such as the Journal of College Student Development, the Review of Higher Education, and the International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education. He is active in several professional organizations, including the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), American Educational Studies Association (AESA), and American College Personal Administrators-International (ACPA).
