The University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service Center on Community Philanthropy announces the Faculty Scholars for the Racial Healing Certification Program.
“I’m excited to have these scholars back with our school,” said Charlotte Williams, Professor and Director of the Clinton School Center on Community Philanthropy. “The Faculty Scholars are leading experts in their respected fields and will help guide the candidates during the applied learning phase of the program.”
The Racial Healing Certification Program is the first designation of its kind designed to provide specialized training, education, and unique experiences that promote skills development and competencies in the targeted area of racial healing. Nine nonprofit leaders were selected to participate.
“We are thrilled to welcome this distinguished group of scholars to the Clinton School,” said Clinton School Dean Victoria M. DeFrancesco Soto. “Each of the Faculty Scholars brings unique experiences and areas of expertise that complement the Center on Community Philanthropy’s Racial Healing Certification Program. We are proud of Dr. Charlotte Williams’ leadership on this initiative.”
In Spring 2022, candidates will transition to the second learning phase of the program, where they will engage with the Faculty Scholars as they demonstrate their mastery of racial healing concepts through scholarship and practice. For more information on the certification program, click here.
