Dr. Jennifer Deaton, a faculty member in the UNC Greensboro department of Counseling and Educational Development (CED) has been accepted into the five-member cohort of the 2022 American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) Minority Serving Institution (MSI) Fellowship Program.

When Antoinette Gregory was a junior in high school, her family moved from their small hometown to a nearby city. And, to her and her mom’s excitement, the local high school had an International Baccalaureate program.

After her own pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum experience was filled with stress in 2017, and learning that her late mother’s medical concerns were normalized by doctors, UNC Greensboro doctoral student Jasmine L. Garland McKinney’s path became clear. Her studies and personal experiences led her to research the mental health impacts of race-related stressors that are specific to Black women during all perinatal stages.

Each year, UNC Greensboro professors and students journey abroad for scholarship and service. But the International Programs Center (IPC) also pursues opportunities to make our campus – and the surrounding community – a hub for international scholarship and a training ground for international teachers, and scholars.
