Kimya A. I. Loder


As an educator, I am committed to supporting students as they make connections between (1) the existing beliefs and experiences that they bring to the classroom, (2) the innovative and diverse concepts introduced in the curriculum, and (3) the evolving world around them.

Abstract Paint

In this undergraduate level sociology seminar on race, ethnicity, and immigration I helped organize course materials, graded and offered feedback on student assignments, and held weekly office hours to reinforce content learned in class.

Race & Immigration


I taught weekly sections for this undergraduate course where students explored seminal Black Studies texts. I organized instructional materials and employed innovative strategies to engage students in online learning.

Black Studies Matter


In this graduate level course I supported students as they learned the foundations of ethnographic methods by reviewing and offering feedback on field notes, strategies for building rapport at field sites, and coding and analyzing data.

Ethnographic Methods


I offered targeted writing and research support to the Urban Studies program's junior seminar by reinforcing lessons on Research Methods, IRB & Ethics, the principles of Community Based Research, etc. as students completed their thesis prospectives. 

Urban Studies Seminar


In this course, I supported the Mellon Mays Undergraduate Fellows as they completed their Capstone Theses and navigated the graduate school application process. This role involved hands on mentorship and support for students of color interested in pursuing academia.
