I enjoy building curriculums that meet the varied needs, goals, and aspirations of students who are interested in working inside and outside of academia. I developed a bachelor's degree program in Multicultural Women's and Gender Studies (MWGS) at Texas Woman's University. It is the first WGS program in the country with concentrations in general study, health, and community leadership.
I also co-created and co-taught with Sheri Davis (Senior Director of Women Innovating Labor Leadership at Rutgers University) the first cross-listed courses about race, gender, and labor between Spelman College, Rutgers University, and the Advancing Black Strategists Initiative (ABSI).
