Beyond academic research and classroom instruction, David takes great joy in applying his knowledge to providing programming, student support, and other efforts to increase the sense of belonging among people of color and other marginalized students, faculty, and staff, and is grateful for the opportunity to do this work as part of the UM-Flint family.
