Associate professor of Counselor Education, Dr. Phillip Johnson, recently was presented with the 2016 Humanitarian Award by the Metropolitan Kalamazoo Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). This award is a direct reflection of the contributions Dr. Johnson has made to improve the lives of people of color in the areas of politics, education, religion, civil rights and community service.
Throughout his career, Dr. Johnson has focused much of his efforts towards decreasing the impact of our racialized society on African Americans, specifically African American males. Dr. Johnson has presented his work at many conferences and written in various journals nationally. He is a member of the University-Community Empowerment Center at Western Michigan University and the Metropolitan Kalamazoo Branch NAACP, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., and Galilee Baptist Church.
