Brandyn Woodard has been working at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University in Central Minnesota since July 2013 as the Director of Intercultural and International Student Services, and most-recently as a Co-Administrator of the Becoming Community Mellon Grant that seeks to implement transformative inclusion at the institutions. He has a bachelor’s degree from Carnegie Mellon University and a master’s degree from Webster University. His interest in Restorative Justice began when he hosted author and activist Patrice Gaines at a college in Iowa where he worked at the time. Since then, he has been a panelist at CSBSJU’s 2015 Peace Studies Conference discussing restorative practices, participated in Restorative Justice training with ACPA, and is currently enrolled in the Restorative Justice Certificate program out of the University of San Diego. One day he hopes to go to cooking school so his leftovers taste better.
