Christopher Hunter



My academic interests focus on the intersection of psychological and sociological social psychology, the organizational analysis of non-profit organizations, and deviance and criminology. I have served as Grinnell College's coordinator of the American Sociological Association's Minority Opportunities through School Transformation Program, as a Grinnell College faculty representative on the Associated Colleges of the Midwest Committee on Minority Concerns, and on the college's Executive Council.  Currently, as I prepare for my transition to Senior Faculty Status, I continue to serve on the board of directors of Mid-Iowa Community Action, the local anti-poverty agency, and I have become the Posse Mentor for DC Posse 9.
