William Kidder

William (Bill) Kidder has more than a dozen years of management experience in California public universities, including in compliance (whistleblower, Title IX, etc.), student affairs and academic affairs. Mr. Kidder’s scholarship focuses on racial and gender equality in higher education – and connects social science, law and policy. His critique of the Trump administration’s proposed Title IX regulation for the standard of evidence appears in the Journal of College & University Law. Kidder’s recent works on Title IX and the prevention of faculty-student sexual harassment in academia (co-authored with Prof. Nancy Cantalupo) appear in the UC Davis Law Review, the Utah Law Review, and the Journal of Legal Education. Mr. Kidder also publishes research related to affirmative action, campus racial climate and equitable admissions criteria, including in the Stanford Law Review and the California Law Review. His works were cited in dozens of amicus briefs in Grutter v. Bollinger and Fisher v. University of Texas, and in Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissenting opinion in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action.  Mr. Kidder is a past board member of Asian Pacific Americans in Higher Education (APAHE). Bill received his J.D. and B.A. at UC Berkeley.
