Mark R. Warren
Areas of Expertise & Civic Involvements
Warren is a sociologist concerned with the revitalization of American democratic and community life. He is a leading expert in the study of contemporary community organizing. Warren studies efforts to strengthen institutions that anchor low-income communities – public schools, religious congregations and other community-based organizations – and to build broad-based alliances among these institutions and across race and social class. He undertakes collaborative research with community-based organizations in order to identify models for school-community collaborations that can integrate education reform with community development initiatives.
