Dr. David Androff

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Androff's dissertation research has been a springboard for his meritorious scholarship. He documented the impact of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) in the community of Greensboro, North Carolina. Dr. Androff's dissertation research is groundbreaking and cutting-edge, in part, because he was the first scholar to examine the use of TRC in the United States.

He has published 12 articles on this topic in his short three years as an assistant professor.
