Dr. David Omotoso Stovall is a professor of Educational Policy Studies and African-American Studies. His research interests include critical race theory, school-community relationships, youth culture and the relationship between housing and K-12 school systems.
Since his arrival at UIC, Stovall has been working with youth, community organizations and schools in Chicago, New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. Furthering his attempt to connect K to 12 and university spaces, Stovall also serves as a volunteer social studies teacher at the Lawndale Little Village School of Social Justice.
Stovall studies the influence of race in urban education, community development, and housing.
