University of Massachusetts Boston

Dr. Warren is an associate professor in the Department of Public Policy and Public Affairs at the University of Massachusetts Boston and lead author of A Match on Dry Grass: Community Organizing as a Catalyst for School Reform (Oxford University Press, 2011). He studies efforts to strengthen institutions that anchor low-income communities— schools, congregations and other community-based organizations—and to build broad-based alliances among these institutions and across race and social class. He is concerned with the revitalization of American democratic and community life, and is committed to using the results of scholarly research to promote equity in public policy and to advance democratic practice.
