Jean J. Schensul is one of two people receiving Honorary Doctorates of Humane Letters at North Carolina State University at its 2016 May 7th Commencement, Raleigh, NC. The Honorary Doctorate recognizes lifetime accomplishments in areas deemed significant by the university. Her Honorary Doctorate recognizes her contributions in the area of research for social justice across the lifespan and in partnership with many communities experiencing marginalization through her work in building and sustaining community based research organizations including the Hispanic Health Council and the Institute for Community Research. She will be recognized at a dinner in honor of awardees and guests, where she will speak briefly about research for social justice, and will receive her award at Commencement the following day. Daniel Schensul, a sociologist at the UN working on Global Climate Change and crisis responses will accompany her, and both will dialogue with anthropologist and sociologist students and faculty on Friday prior to Commencement activities.
