Terry Huffman came to George Fox University as a member of the sociology program in 2003 and joined the Doctor of Education department in 2006. He is the primary author of transculturation theory, a major theoretical perspective on indigenous education. Transculturation theory links strong cultural identity with academic success among Native American students and is widely used by scholars working in the area of indigenous education around the world. He teaches courses in research methods and political and social perspectives on education. Dr. Huffman was the recipient of the 2011-2012 Graduate Faculty Achievement Award for Research & Scholarship.

Outside the Classroom

Terry enjoys photography, hiking with his family, horseback riding, and Negro League baseball history. As a sideline, he also strives to be a constant source of embarrassment to his teenaged daughter (it’s in the Father’s Manual).
