Charles S. Corprew, III joined the Loyola University New Orleans psychology faculty in August of 2011. He received his B.A. in History from James Madison University in 1993. After receiving his M.A. in Education from Norfolk State University in 1997, he taught for ten years within the Virginia Beach Public School System, teaching both American History and Advanced Placement Psychology. During his time with the school system, he also served as the Director of the James Madison University Male Academy. The academy is a three week summer program geared toward the academic and social development of adolescent African American males. It would be his experiences teaching as well as with the academy that motivated him to pursue his doctoral degree. Charles completed his Ph.D. in Psychological Science at Tulane University in the spring of 2011, centering his research on issues of academic achievement and masculinity with adolescent and emerging adulthood populations. Dr. Corprew’s current research interest focuses on understanding how the intersection of masculinity and culture impact the academic achievement of adolescent African American males. Additionally, his interest will continue to focus on issues of hypermasculinity within adolescent and emerging adulthood populations. In particular, the function the construct serves for males adopting its characteristics.
