Associate Prof. Amanda Lewis Announced as New Director of IRRPP

From IRRPP homepage (

As we celebrate outgoing Director Beth Richie’s brilliant guidance for the last five years, we in IRRPP are also thrilled to welcome Amanda E. Lewis as our new Director. Professor Lewis is an Associate Professor in the Departments of African American Studies & Sociology. Her research and writing focus on how race shapes educational opportunities from kindergarten through college and how our ideas about race are negotiated in everyday life. Like IRRPP, Professor Lewis is dedicated to issues of racial justice, institutional change, and engaged scholarship. We look forward to this new chapter in IRRPP.
