Dr. Marty Harris, Academic Dean, LA/Orange County, has been appointed to serve on the Initial Review Board of the American Psychological Association's Minority Fellowship Program (APA-MFP). For over 30 years, APA-MFP has provided millions in doctoral level funding for a variety of areas, including HIV training, gerontology, neuroscience, clinical and substance abuse research, prevention and practice. Dr. Harris is a former funding recipient and Clinical Fellow of the program, and has also served as a program officer, grant writer and manager for APA-MFP.
Last week Dr. Harris accepted another invitation, serving as a board member for a new foundation sponsored by both the Kellogg Foundation and Vanderbilt University.
A published researcher, Dr. Harris also recently agreed to serve on the Board of Editors for the Journal of Psychological Issues in Organizational Culture. The Journal, a joint venture between the University of the Rockies and Wiley Press, is in the midst of compiling articles for its second volume.
As a registered consultant and grant reviewer for the U.S. Department of Justice, Dr. Harris will also be presenting an introductory workshop on grant writing during the Mental Health Corrections Conference, April 12-14, in Chicago.
