Daren Graves is currently the director of the Urban Master's Program at Simmons College. As a teacher educator, he is committed to preparing teachers who see urban youth as assets in the teaching and learning process. His research interest involves the interplay of school culture and racial identity on the academic performance of Black adolescents. Graves' research has given him an understanding of the issues that Boston-area youth face inside and outside of their school environments. Graves previously served as assistant director at Simmons College Upward Bound in Boston, where he helped coordinate the academic and college preparation components of this federally funded after-school and summer program.
