Alumni on the Move

Alumni On the Move 7/26/2017 – Professor Gregory Parks ’96
Professor Gregory S. Parks ’96 has been named Associate Dean for Research, Public Engagement and Faculty Development.

“Gregory is not only a prolific scholar, but also an active member of the community,” says Dean Suzanne Reynolds. “Gregory will help us find the community engagements that fulfill us personally and remind our audiences of why law matters, now more than ever.”

Professor Parks has authored or edited more than 10 scholarly books. Among them are Oxford University Press publication,”The Obamas and a (Post) Racial America?” and The New Press publication “Twelve Angry Men: True Stories of Being a Black Man in America.” He is currently co-authoring a book on the history of African-American fraternities and sororities’ racial uplift work.

Prior to coming to Wake Forest, Professor Parks did trial and appellate work in the Washington, D.C., office of McDermott Will & Emery LLP. He was a visiting fellow at Cornell Law School and a law clerk on both the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

Congratulations Professor Parks! Read more.
