Dr. Mac Stewart Honored

At the 3rd Annual International Colloquium on Black Males in Education, Dr. Mac Stewart, previous Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion (then the Office of Minority Affairs), was part of the inaugural class of inductees for the Warrior Awards. Dr Stewart was recognized for his longstanding service, commitment, and leadership focused on the challenges impacting Black males in education globally.

The Bell Resource Center co-convened the 3rd Annual International Colloquium on Black Males in Education on October 1-4, 2014 at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, along with Wisconsin’s Equity & Inclusion Lab at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. The colloquium was co-founded by Dr. Jerlando F. L. Jackson of the University of Wisconsin at Madison and Dr. James L. Moore III, director of the Bell National Resource Center, associate provost for Diversity and Inclusion, and the EHE Distinguished Professor of Urban Education at The Ohio State University.

The theme for the Colloquium was“Doing Something Different in the 21st Century: Informed by What Works with Black Males in the New Global Economy” and provided a forum for education researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to discuss international perspectives and local realities for Black males around the world. Sessions included topics on school and community partnerships, college success, manhood, literacy development, role modeling and mentorship, and single-gendered schools. Colloquium attendees had the opportunity to fellowship and engage scholars, researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and college students from the world. Attendees viewed Dr. Martin Luther King’s written papers, speeches, and sermons, a body of work spanning from 1944 to 1968 and heard keynote addresses from Dr. Paul Warmington, Senior Lecturer and Deputy Director of the Centre for Research in Race and Education at University of Birmingham (UK).
