Dr. Kristi Johnson, EdD in KIN Alum, named an Engaged Faculty Scholar

Congratulations are in order for Dr. Kristi Vincint Johnson on being named an Engaged Faculty Scholar through North Carolina Campus Compact. Dr. Johnson is currently the Director of Dance and Assistant Professor of Dance at North Carolina Central University. A 2021 EdD in KIN graduate, Kristi’s dissertation was titled, “A Framework for Developing Effective and Sustainable Asset-Based Community-Campus Partnerships in Dance.”

The program was centered on community-engaged partnerships through dance – where all entities involved benefited and the program remained sustainable. The Engaged Faculty Scholars program will give Kristi the opportunity to carry out a self-designed project that advances the scholarship of engagement at her institution. She will also work to expand faculty engagement at another member campus.

We are so excited to see Kristi continue her dissertation work beyond UNC Greensboro. Keep up the great work Dr. Johnson! For more information about the EdD in KIN program click here.
