Alexandra Pavlakis

Alexandra Pavlakis, Assistant Professor in Education Policy and Leadership, is one of 11 SMU faculty members to receive a Sam Taylor Fellowship Award from the Sam Taylor Fellowship Fund of the Division of Higher Education, United Methodist General Board of Higher Education and Ministry. Pavlakis researches how wide-ranging policies and the actions of schools and communities shape the educational experiences of low-income, highly mobile and homeless students and their families.

The award will help her examine the increase in student homelessness and specifically will look at North Dallas High School, where a cross-section of organizations and people are responding to the issue.
