Description

Felecia Ross, associate professor, recently served on a panel at the University of Georgia titled “Graduate Education through the Decades: The Impact of Mary Frances Early.”

Mary Frances Early, the university's first Black person to earn a graduate-level degree at this university, was one of the panelists. Joining her on the panel were graduates representing each decade. Ross represented the '80s as she was the first Black person to earn a doctorate from the university's Grady College of Journalism and Communication.

Her talk included reflections of her experience at the university and strategies for strengthening the pipeline for Black graduate students entering the professoriate.
