Lunch and Learn with Dr. Joseph Cooper, Assistant Professor, University of Connecticut and Founder of Collective Uplift
March 2, 2018 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Dr. Cooper joined the Sport Management program at the University of Connecticut in August 2013. Prior to joining the faculty at UConn, Dr. Cooper served as an instructor and graduate teaching assistant at the University of Georgia while completing his doctorate. Dr. Cooper’s research agenda focuses on the nexus between sport, education, race, and culture with an emphasis on sport as a catalyst for holistic development and positive changes in society. He is a member of the North American Society for the Sociology of Sport (NASSS), North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM), and the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Dr. Cooper is also the founder of Collective Uplift (CU), an organization designed to educate, empower, and inspire students across racial and ethnic backgrounds at UConn (and the world) to maximize their full potential as holistic individuals both within and beyond athletic contexts. Honors Carolina is pleased to partner with Men of Color Engagement to host this event.
