Former assistant Extension professor
Work, research and interests
Josey collaborated with Extension faculty, educators and community partners to design, develop, and support the assessment and improvement of the quality, outputs, and outcomes of Center for Youth Development programs. Her work ensured the availability of data and staff capacity to use the data to improve programs, promote organizational learning, and deepen program impact on critical priority issues.
Josey received her Ph.D. from the comparative and international development program at the University of Minnesota and worked in the Urban Research and Outreach-Engagement Center (UROC). Her research focus examined the role that non-formal learning opportunities played in the educational experiences of immigrant Latino youth. She was part of a research project that examined the pathways of youth in out-of-school time programs, focusing on Latino youth in Minnesota and Illinois. Josey’s scholarship, teaching, and program leadership helped to bridge the university with the community, bringing university resources to communities across the state and community wisdom back to the university.
