Jerome Morris, participating in national racial jusice collaborative

Jerome Morris, a Fellow in UGA’s Institute for Behavioral Research and a professor in the department of workforce education, leadership and social foundations, will participate in the Ford Foundation’s Secondary Education and Racial Justice Collaborative, a national project focused on advancing racial justice and moving a progressive secondary education agenda forward.

He will join colleagues from across the nation in New York City to produce papers and develop new frameworks for conceptualizing youth development and education in relation to racial justice.

Morris was selected because his work on understanding the significance of the South and black education has been chosen as a key strategy of the project, according to the collaborative’s principal investigators.
