Paul Harris, an assistant professor in the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education, will give a guest brown bag talk on March 6 entitled “Promoting the College Readiness of Black Male Student-Athletes.” The talk, which begins at noon in Room 02, is sponsored by the School Counseling program. Harris’s research interests include issues related to equity, access, and educational justice. Specifically, he explores the ways through which school counselors can facilitate educational success in black males, particularly those participating in sports. He will briefly discuss the historic relevance of sports in the lives of black males, share preliminary results from a current study focusing on how to facilitate the educational development of this group at the high school level, and explore the implications for educators, particularly school counselors. Plan to bring your lunch and join the conversation.

Speaker: Paul Harris
