Brief Biography

Prof. Green came to Hope on a two-year contract in 1983 and has been here ever since. After ten years full-time in the department, he directed the college's applied social science research for seven years and then led the Phelps Scholars Program (an academic/residential opportunity for first-year students, focused on understanding race and culture) for another 14.

Now back full-time in psychology, he is enjoying his teaching and working in several ways to share social science research on race and culture with a broader audience.

His wife, Fonda Green, directs the college's CASA (Children's After-School Achievement) program, in which Hope students work one-on-one with local elementary students on their academic, personal, and social development. They have three grown children.
