Dr. Greg Vincent, who holds both a law degree (J.D.) and doctor of education (Ed.D.), is a professor in the UK College of Education Department of Educational Policy Studies and Evaluation and executive director of a groundbreaking collaboration between the UK College of Education and the NAACP, the nation’s largest and most preeminent civil rights organization. University faculty and NAACP leaders collaboratively developed an education and research initiative focused on educational equity, civil rights, and social justice. Together, they are addressing racial inequities plaguing the U.S. education system.
Today, Vincent answers some of our questions about how laws continue to play a role in promoting civil rights and how faculty research and analysis can be used to help advance educational equity through UK’s Education and Civil Rights Initiative in collaboration with the NAACP. The initiative is housed in the UK College of Education’s Department of Education Policy Studies and Evaluation.
