Dr. Anne Gregory received the 2018 Joseph E. Zins Awards, which was established by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) in 2007 to honor the memory of Joe Zins. CASEL presents the Joseph E. Zins Awards to honor two outstanding action researchers at different career stages – the Early Career Award for Outstanding Contributions to Action Research in Social and Emotional Learning by a scholar at the Research Scientist or Assistant or Associate Professor level, and the Distinguished Scholar Award for Outstanding Contributions to Action Research in Social and Emotional Learning by a scientist at the Senior Research Scientist or Full Professor level.
Dr. Gregory’s research has focused on the persistent trend that African American adolescents are issued school suspension and expulsion at higher rates than adolescents from other groups. Through program development and evaluation, she aims to address this trend by strengthening characteristics of teachers, classrooms, and schools associated with the successful schooling of diverse students. Her research interests also include understanding the promise of restorative approaches to school discipline. She has authored over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and numerous book chapters. Dr. Gregory’s research has been supported by federal agencies and private foundations.
Congratulations, Dr. Gregory!
