My primary interest has become helping students convert their dreams into plans and their plans into goals and their goals into realities.

For at least 2 ½ decades my research interests have focused on ways to improve the well being of less advantaged people and families. I have pursued this through not for profit organizations, through government agencies, and through think tanks. I feel fortunate to have students who are willing and often eager to engage in these issues.
