Marc A. Grimmett, Ph.D., is a professor, counselor education program coordinator, coordinator for clinical mental health counseling, and founder and co-director of the Community Counseling, Education, and Research Center (CCERC) of the counselor education program at North Carolina State University. The conceptual framework for his research agenda is titled RADICAL scholarship, which means Research Action to Deconstruct Institutionalized Cultures and Advocate for Liberation. This framework currently includes four areas of concentration, which are: preventing gender-based violence through education, activism, male engagement, transformative masculinity, and community partnerships; facilitating access to preventive community mental health counseling services; transforming contextual and systemic factors to promote the healthy development of African American people in general, and males in particular; and developing teaching and research methods in social justice counselor education and engagement scholarship. Dr. Grimmett is the executive producer, co-director, and co-writer of MY MASCULINITY HELPS, an educational documentary that explores the role of African American men and boys in the prevention of sexual violence.
