PhD, 2020
Postdoctoral Research Fellow (NCSU)

Lindsey Hammond works currently as a Chief Executive Officer at Five Points Yoga & Pilates for the People and as a Success Coach at Studio Grow. 

Prior to this role, Hammond served as a Postdoctoral Postsecondary Career and Technical Education Research Fellow at NC State University sponsored by the ECMC Foundation. IHE was the host of her postdoctoral fellowship.

Her major project for the fellowship is a qualitative investigation into how stigma related to CTE influences state-level policy formation. Ultimately, she hopes to affect policy change that will enable America to live up to its highest ideals. IHE is hosting her this semester.

She studies the intersections between public policy, two-year postsecondary institutions, workforce development, and social stratification. Hammond has contributed to scholarship related to Drs. Ness and Hearn’s WT Grant Foundation project examining the use of evidence in the completion policymaking process in addition to contributing her mixed-methods expertise to grant proposals related to policy. As a former intermediary organization staff member and Washingtonian, she values engagement in public policy to ensure higher education’s continued contribution to the public good.

Hammond’s professional experience includes campus-based student affairs practice, as well as work at the intermediary organization, NASPA - Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education. While at NASPA, she was responsible for supporting the success of the community colleges division and developing high-quality, timely professional development for campus practitioners in a wide variety of practice areas. Her campus-based work included alcohol and other drug prevention education and fraternity and sorority life advising.

Hammond is the 2018-19 recipient of the Thomas G. Dyer Outstanding Dissertation Research award and the 2019-20 recipient of the Zell and Shirley Miller Fellowship.
