A passion for civil rights and social justice advocacy brought Austin into the field of public administration. He has focused his research on nonprofit management, strategic planning, policy implementation & evaluation, and the intersectionality of black and queer identities.
When do you feel connected to something greater than yourself?
"I am the oldest of 8 siblings. Every time I return to my hometown in Florida and see them growing up, coming into their personalities, and building on their passions, I know I am a part of something greater."
"Austin has a spirit that is invigorating when he walks into the room. His work ethic, love of life, and attention-to-detail makes him someone you always want to be around and learn from."
