  • 3DIVERSITY

    Emmanuel Vincent 09 Ed.D., was an education policy fellow at Northeastern University when he was awarded a Carnegie Fellowship to study ways to innovate education for the 21st century, in particular for African-American and Latino students coming through the public education system.

    Vincent came to JWU to earn a doctorate in educational leadership after completing his masters in special education. Vincents interest lies in charter schools and special education, comparing educational approaches of other nations to build on the best components of all.

    When I got the Fulbright, it was icing on the cake, says Vincent. I was very excited. I am from a small place in Liberia, West Africa, and came to America. Ive been presented with all of this opportunity.

    With Fulbright funding, Vincent traveled to Japan and spent three weeks touring a special education school, a middle school and a high school to observe how the education system works, especially for those with special needs.

    Combining his experiences there with research hed collected in Costa Rica, Puerto Rico and Europe, Vincent used the data in his doctoral dissertation, The Emergent Charter School Model for Ninth Grade Mildly Disabled Students: Extending to Africa.

    He is now an assistant professor of special education at Springfield College in Springfield, Mass., and founder and creative director of Pink Grape Consulting LLC.

    Global Perspective
