Perre Shelton focuses on the language and practice of social justice that moves beyond the optics of inclusivity; one that pushes the mission of CDIHE forward in a way that makes topics relative to diversity and inclusion a central and vital competent of UMD’s institutional culture and climate. He is a former educator, teaching culturally-inclusive literacy on the south-side of Chicago. He continues his journey as a Ph.D. Candidate in Counseling Psychology at Howard University. Perre's ultimate goal is to be able to create and enact comprehensive and interdisciplinary service delivery models (i.e. mental-health, vocational-assistance, academic-counseling, etc.) that targets vulnerable populations that have historically had limited or frayed access to such services.
