Collection Description

Historical Note

Maurice C. Daniels is co-founder and director of The Foot Soldier Project for Civil Rights Studies, which was established in 1999. From July 2005 through June 2016 he served as dean of the University of Georgia School of Social Work. As dean, Daniels advanced interdisciplinary scholarship and social justice through the development of new degrees, endowed professorships and a research center. During his tenure, the school created dual master's of social work degrees in law, public health and divinity—each one a first for the state of Georgia. He also promoted the endowment of two professorships: the Donald L. Hollowell Distinguished Professorship of Social Justice and Civil Rights Studies—the university's inaugural distinguished professorship named for an African American—and the Georgia Athletic Association Professorship in Health and Well-Being. In addition, he ushered the creation of the interdisciplinary Center for Social Justice, Human and Civil Rights.
