Dean's Research Associate - Michigan State University School of Social Work

Dr. Morris serves as a Dean's Research Associate at Michigan State University in the School of Social Work. She is a part of an initiative aimed at training promising scholars to enter into tenure track positions. Her research focuses on the impact of trauma and community violence in Black neighborhoods. She obtained her Ph.D. from Boston University in May 2022. She is a two time U-M alum, completing her B.S. in 2015 and her M.S.W. in 2016. Having an LSA education has been very valuable for the career trajectory that she has taken because her degree gave her a wide variety of skills that allowed her to pursue her current career as a social worker. She hopes to remain in academia as a tenured professor and one day enter into an administrative role. She is married to another U-M alum from the College of Engineering, Jeffrey Morris, Jr., and they have a four year old dog named Nala.
