Brief Bio

Dr. Hunter A. Taylor serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor & Recruiter for the Mississippi Teacher Corps (MTC) at the University of Mississippi (UM). He is also a former corps member (Class of '06), who taught math and coached multiple sports in Jackson Public Schools (JPS). During his time as part of MTC's staff, Taylor has helped lead efforts to revitalize its recruitment strategy, strengthen the admissions process, solidify its teaching alignment, and seek out creative partnerships within the state. Some of the team's biggest achievements in this time frame have been the launching of a new website, logo, and social media campaign; the addition of the MTC Advisory Board; a renewed partnership with JPS; and record highs for teacher retention within the program. Currently, Taylor serves on the Advisory Boards of the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, CHOOSE - a national education non-profit, and the University of Arkansas's Academy for Educational Equity. He is also a Guest Lecturer in the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin (UT-Austin), an advisor to Oxford High School's football program, and co-founder of the leadership consulting group, Coach & Doc, LLC. In 2018, the George W. Bush Institute & the William J. Clinton Foundation named him a Presidential Leadership Scholar for his work in education. He was one of 59 leaders chosen from across the U.S. He received his B.B.A. from UT-Austin, his M.A.T. from the University of Mississippi, and his Ed.D. from Baylor University. Before making the leap into academia, Taylor spent 10 years as a men's basketball coach and two years as a U.S. Senate staffer. He lives in Oxford, MS, with his wife, Brittany, and their three sons, Yates, Simms, & Knox.
