Charlyn Harper Browne
I am primarily responsible for contributing to research and the racial equity agenda that is foundational to projects within CSSP’s Young Children and Their Families and Youth Thrive bodies of work, as well as other partnership projects, including the Quality Improvement Center on Domestic Violence in Child Welfare.
I do this work because
I am committed to helping strengthen the knowledge base of practitioners, administrators, and policymakers whose work directly and indirectly can influence the healthy development and well-being of children and families.
I am most proud of
My proudest professional accomplishment is that numerous African American undergraduate and graduate students have achieved a master’s or doctoral degree, in part, due to my encouragement, teaching, and mentorship.
