Courtney L. McCluney is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Darden School of Business and Center Interprofessional Education at the University of Virginia. Her research investigates marginalization practices and processes that historically and systematically separate the ‘center’of social institutions—where power and resources are concentrated—from the ‘margins’ where underrepresented groups are relegated. These practices historically and systemically challenge particular groups’ (i.e., the ‘marginalized’) access to resources, legitimacy, and power in organizations and society. Courtney received her PhD in Psychology (Personality and Social Contexts) at the University of Michigan and BA in Psychology and Interpersonal/Organizational Communications at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She previously worked as a Research Associate at Catalyst, Inc. and served as an AmeriCorps volunteer with New Sector Alliance. As a first-generation college graduate, Courtney dedicates her work to advancing public scholarship with underserved communities.
