Join us for a Research Bite with Gina E. Miranda Samuels, CSRPC Faculty Director and Professor at Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice!
Gina Miranda Samuels is a Professor at the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice, and Faculty Director of the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture. She explores the experiences of youth and young adults who have histories of displacement through foster care, transracial adoption, or home loss. Her work has been used in public testimony to advance changes in policy for youth homelessness and for young people aging out of foster care, and was named among the top 14 most impactful African American social work scholars in the Unites States. Dr. Miranda Samuels brings her own lived expertise as a person who was adopted through foster care as an infant, and her practice experiences as a social worker in settings including juvenile probation, child welfare, post-adoption training, and school social work.
