Dr. Morrison is responsible for the operation of multiple initiatives that are core to E4A’s mission and goals. This includes grantee management where she is the primary point of contact, works closely with prospective applicants, and oversees a portfolio of over 30 active research grants. She also maintains the Technical Assistance (TA) program where she provides research support and capacity building. Dr. Morrison's scholarship is informed by critical epistemologies to investigate the points at which higher education, policy, and racial identity intersect to influence Black student experiences across the African diaspora.
The thing that excites me most about the work that E4A is doing is the purposeful orientation toward action. It is too often that research focused on racially minoritized groups does not move beyond study findings. Helping to address this challenge is powerful for understanding and applying racial equity.
