Professor takes lead role in promoting safe, healthy learning in Orleans Parish

September 6, 2013

Loyola University New Orleans psychology professor Charles Corprew, Ph.D., is taking a leading role in Orleans Parish PLACE MATTERS, a local initiative supported by the Joint Center for Politics and Economic Studies, aimed at promoting safe and healthy learning environments for youth and families.

Through its policy initiatives aimed at keeping children safe and healthy, Orleans Parish PLACE MATTERS focuses on keeping children in quality schools. In particular, the organization is honing in on policies that avoid the school-to-prison pipeline that disproportionately affects African-American men and boys, according to Corprew. “This work will be done in concert with partners committed to finding ways of keeping young African-American males in school and off the streets,” he said.
