About the William Cross Jr. Lecture Series

crossculturalcrossThe Counselor Education Program at Georgia Southern University has established a lecture series to honor Dr. William Cross Jr., currently at the University of Denver as the Program Coordinator and Clinical Assistant Professor with their Higher Education Program. Cross is a member of the editorial boards of Race & Ethnic Minority Psychology and the Journal of Multicultural Counseling & Development. His text, Shades of Black: Diversity in African-American Identity (Temple University Press, 1991), is considered a classic in the discourse on black identity. Cross earned his Ph.D. in psychology from Princeton University in 1970. Since that time, he has taught for nearly 40 years in the psychology and Afro-American Studies programs at Princeton University; Rutgers University; The Rockefeller University; Cornell University; The Pennsylvania State University; The University of Massachusetts, Amherst; and the University of New York. The series will provide a forum to raise awareness and call to action counselors, educators, and community activists. The lecture series was established at the initiative of the Counselor Education Program at Georgia Southern University. The establishment of this lecture series also recognizes Dr Cross’s continuous efforts in creating, supporting, and maintaining opportunities for social justice, anti-oppression, and counseling.
