Charles R. Martin-Stanley II


Charles R. Martin-Stanley II, Ph.D. is the Director for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity at Mount Mercy University. Dr. Martin-Stanley's research focuses on the persistence and retention of Black college men at historically white institutions. More specifically, he focuses on the racial socialization of Black college men and the agency they have within their own socialization into historically white intuitions. In his role at Mount Mercy University, he is charged with creating a and sustaining a campus environment where diversity, equity, and inclusivity are welcomed and encouraged. Dr. Martin-Stanley uses the Theory of Being by teaching faculty, staff, administrators, and students how to engage in difficult dialogues in a thoughtful and meaningful way.
