CLEMSON – Dr. Lamont A. Flowers, executive director of the Charles H. Houston Center, served as a co-director of the 6th Annual Asa G. Hilliard III and Barbara A. Sizemore Research Institute on African Americans and Education on April 27th at the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association in San Francisco, CA.

The research institute, sponsored by the American Educational Research Association’s Research Focus on Black Education Special Interest Group, is a mentoring program designed to promote doctoral student development and highlight strategies to assist with conducting research regarding the African American experience in education.

“The research institute is designed to provide an opportunity for doctoral students to produce a manuscript related to the study of the Black experience in education and prepare for a faculty career,” said Flowers.

The Charles H. Houston Center implements programs to support the production of research on the Black experience in education.
