UW-Madison alumnus Terrance Green will be receiving the 2017 Early Career Award from the American Educational Research Association’s Division A.
Division A supports an examination of sources and types of educational leadership -- including administrators and others inside and outside schools -- and the effects of leadership on educational institutions.
This Early Career Award is given annually to a scholar in the first five years of her/his career who has made outstanding research contributions to the field of educational leadership, administration and organization.
Green earned his Ph.D. from the School of Education's Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis in 2013. Today, he is an assistant professor of educational administration at the University of Texas-Austin’s College of Education.
In 2016, Green was the recipient of the William J. Davis award for the most outstanding article published in a volume of the Educational Administration Quarterly, the top journal in the field of educational administration and leadership.
Green’s research examines the nexus of urban school reform and socially just community development, with a particular focus on school and community leaders. He also researches issues of geography of educational opportunity for children of color from low-income backgrounds.
