Sheila Radford-Hill—September 22-October 20, 2002

Educator, community activist, and author Sheila Radford-Hill will be on the Luther College campus from Sept. 22 through Oct. 20, 2002 as the first month-long participant in Luther’s vocational residency program.

During her time here, Radford-Hill will meet with students, classes and campus groups, and lead discussions on how individuals can best reach their full potential.

“This is an excellent opportunity to share with young people what it takes to understand God’s plan for their life and to be patient with the unfolding of how God is working in their life,” said Radford-Hill. “I will also share research in community development, education and critical race theory in an effort to deepen student’s understanding of the key challenges in public policy and in neighborhood development.”

Radford-Hill brings to Luther a rich and varied career experience centered on education, nonprofit management, community development and gender issues. She has been a division administrator in the Illinois State Board of Education, a senior economic planner in the University of Illinois Chicago College of Urban Planning and Public Policy, director of the Chicago Area Project, a nationally recognized delinquency prevention network, and author of “Further to Fly: Black Women and the Politics of Empowerment.”
“I look forward to sharing my experiences with the Luther community and to helping its students prepare for future challenges and opportunities,” said Radford-Hill.

Radford-Hill received her bachelor’s degree from DePaul University, her master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania and is currently a doctoral candidate from Columbia Commonwealth University School of Arts and Sciences.
