Drew Wiggins

Drew Wiggins, B.S., is a doctoral student in clinical psychology at Wayne State University. Following graduating with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with the Chancellor’s Service Award, Drew joined Teach For America as a secondary science teacher in New Haven, Connecticut, where he later became a finalist for the Teach For America Sue Lehman National Teaching Fellowship Award. Drew went on to deepen his work pursuing educational equity through coaching first-year teachers in anti-racist praxis and pedagogy and leading Teach For America’s talent and operations strategy throughout the state of Connecticut.

As a doctoral student, Drew focuses his clinical work and research on racial and sexual gender minorities, with an emphasis on male-identifying survivors of sexual victimization. Drew takes an intersectional, gender justice, and systemic equity lens in the hopes of contributing culturally relevant work that can inform future empirical research and interventions for populations historically marginalized and disenfranchised throughout the United States.
