Greene is associate professor of English with a joint appointment in the Department of Africana Studies. His research has examined the intersections of race, poverty and achievement in public schools. This work has led to the publication of his co-edited volume, “Making Race Visible: Literacy Research for Racial Understanding” (Teachers College Press, 2003), for which he won the National Council of Teachers of English Richard A. Meade Award in 2005. He also edited “Literacy as a Civil Right” (Peter Lang, 2008) and co-edited, with Cathy Compton-Lilly, “Bedtime Stories and Book Reports: Connecting Parent Involvement and Family Literacy” (Teachers College Press, 2011). His current research focuses on literacy, youth empowerment and civic engagement in the context of university/community partnerships. He has served in a number of administrative roles, including the O’Malley Director of the University Writing Program (1997–2004), director and founder of the minor in Education, Schooling, and Society (2002–2012) and associate dean for Undergraduate Studies in Arts and Letters (2005–2010).
