14 Nov Speaking at the Fall Fellows Retreat and NAEd Annual Meeting
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the National Academy of Education will meet November 16 – 19, 2016 for its Fall Fellows Retreat and NAEd Annual Meeting. I am pleased to be present my work at the meeting.
My study, College Presidents and Civil Rights: A History, will be presented to Fellows, NAEd members, and the Academy consisting of U.S. members and foreign associates elected on the basis of outstanding scholarship related to education. Since its establishment in 1965, the Academy has undertaken research studies addressing pressing issues in education, and sponsors professional development programs to enhance the preparation of the next generation of education scholars.
Last week, I presented at the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), and I’m looking forward to sharing – with a new group of academics – how college presidents and chancellors positioned themselves within the national dialogue, on desegregation and civil rights in the 1960s. Considering the current racial issues several academic leaders face today, this study provides new insights into presidents’ and chancellors’ responses to critical moments of race on campuses.
