Her discussion will be on student activism and will feature the work of students in the Greensboro Truth and Reconciliation process. Jovanovic’s career of community engaged scholarship has included a decade of scholarship on truth and reconciliation processes. This conference presentation is part of a Kellogg Foundation national initiative on truth and reconciliation, she notes.

Also, she has been asked to serve on the national Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE). The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the formation of this new Academic Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) earlier this fall. The subcommittee will provide advice and recommendations aimed at enhancing DHS’s CVE-related programs, policies and initiatives.
