The Community misses your knowledge, unless you bring it back! We need "Scholars Within" to learn from the community and to share what you know with the community. The Communities know...and we listen to them!

“We remove the veil that sometimes hides our Scholars from our view.”
Join "Scholars Within" today and help to re-connect our researchers, our students, and schools with the community and various stakeholder groups.
Research poster sessions featuring the work of scholars Dr. Gina Nelson-Newton, Dr. Calista Kelly, and Dr. Talisa Sullivan were well-received at the 2017 Villager Awards.
We are recruiting African-American scholars, graduate students, and others from throughout the African Diaspora and the continent to share their research with lay audiences including policy-makers, community leaders, and affected others.
We are seeking mentors who can support and encourage graduate students in their emerging research by connecting them to affected communities.

"Our solutions are bigger than any one profession or job. We must reclaim our interconnections and learn to freely share information with each other, and to support the success of a new generation. We must create connections and collaborations. Our goal must be to move this system in the direction of caring what happens to persons who need it the most, and we must take our place in that effort. We will find a way to make a difference!"
