Story
Tagline
Applied sociologist, education researcher, photographer, protector of children, lover, fighter, and champion of human capital development
Introduction

I work to empower individuals and communities to better themselves and the rest of humanity through education and civic engagement. I engage and encourage others to obtain and exchange empirical as well as experiential evidence that can be used to improve human capital development in the United States and beyond.

I have passionate interests in a broad range of public and social issues as well as scholarly and applied expertise in education, sociology, and social psychology. For over 10 years, I have leveraged the power of qualitative and quantitative research methods to collect, analyze, and report data in ways that improve outcomes for students and organizations.

As an award-winning writer and instructor, I've been recognized for quickly engaging audiences, establishing rapport, and developing harmonious relationships with diverse individuals from all backgrounds, constituencies and organizational levels.

For more information about the research and applied work that I've done and the work I will continue to do with my colleagues and fellow leaders at Franklin & Marshall College (F&M) and as part of the Pahara Aspen Education Fellows, please visit my F&M website at: http://www.fandm.edu/donnell-butler.
