Keith G. Martin
Keith G. Martin joined NC State University in January 2018 and currently serves as the Senior Academic Advisor for the Student Success & Advising Center within the College of Education. In his role, he uses proactive and appreciative advising for 1st and 2nd-year education majors with course selection, university and tutorial resources, student success, and degree attainment.
Martin is a Ph.D. student in the Higher Education Opportunity, Equity, and Justice program area of study at NC State. His research interests are in the following: college access,
retention, and student success; food and housing insecurities; and college environment and climate impact on underrepresented student experiences. He received his Master of Education in College Student Affairs at the University of South Florida, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Tampa.
Prior to his current role at NC State, he served as an academic advisor for the Poole College of Management. He also worked in Residential Education at UNC Asheville as a Community Director. Additional experiences of his include working as an academic advisor for Hillsborough Community College (Dale Mabry campus), and advising first-generation and low-income students at the University of South Florida (Tampa campus).
For Martin, having the opportunity to serve with HOST is something that is both personal and rewarding to him. He believes that HOST is a great resource for a vulnerable and sometimes unseen student population. It is his hope to help bring awareness while also sharing with others ways that they can support students who are housing and food insecure.
Martin is happily married and has a toddler son. He enjoys a good mix of food, music, and travel. One of his favorite past times is hopping in his car and driving miles on end with his radio blasting!
