Profile

Connie K. Chung is the associate director of the Global Education Innovation Initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, a multi-institution collaborative that works with education institutions in eight countries. Her field of research is in education for the 21st century, civic education and global citizenship education, including building the capacity of organizations and people to work collaboratively toward providing a powerful, relevant, rigorous, and meaningful education for all children that not only supports their individual growth but also the development of their communities. She is the co-editor of the book, Teaching and Learning for the Twenty-first Century: Educational Goals, Policies, and Curricula from Six Nations (2016, HEP). In pursuing her research interest in ways in which people from diverse backgrounds can learn to work together and leverage their collective power for positive change in their communities, she was involved in a multi-year, multi-site study of education reform and community organizing in the United States, the results of which are published in the book A Match on Dry Grass: Community Organizing as a Catalyst for School Reform (Oxford University Press, 2011). She has worked as a staff member, consultant, and speaker with various human rights and civic education organizations. She currently serves on the board of two nonprofits, including Aaron's Presents, an organization that offers grants to students in grades 8 and below to encourage positive development in themselves and in their community. A former public high school English teacher, she was nominated by her former students for various teaching awards. She has taught college and graduate students on the topics of nonprofit management and multicultural education, and was also a curriculum consultant in the development of a K–12 global citizenship education curriculum.
