WASHINGTON (October 1 , 2013) – Howard University’s School of Divinity is pleased to announce that Harold Dean Trulear, Ph.D. has joined the Executive Session on Community Corrections, which convenes at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

“It is a signal honor for Dr. Trulear to be appointed to serve on the session,” said Alton Pollard, dean and professor of Religion and Culture at the School of Divinity. “His leadership on such critical issues as incarceration, prisoner re-entry, faith-based organizations, and community wholeness has been of crucial import, especially for the African American community.”

This prestigious panel consists of approximately 30 of the leading policymakers, practitioners and researchers on community corrections from across the country. Since 1983, the Executive Sessions have  helped shape the meaning and future of criminal justice policy in the United States. The session aims to develop best practices and thinking for professionals across the public safety and criminal justice spectrum. The first meeting of the executive session was held on Sept. 12, 2013. The session will meet several more times through the spring of 2016.

Trulear serves as associate professor of applied theology at the School of Divinity.  He is also director of the Healing Communities Ministries. He currently teaches Ministry and Criminal Justice, Church and Community Studies, Prophetic Ministry, and Church Music and Worship.  Trulear has lectured for university, church and professional organizations across the country, including Fuller Theological Seminary, Rice University, Baylor University, Tuskegee University, Southern University, Payne Theological Seminary, Princeton University, the American Baptist Churches/USA, the Mount Sinai Holy Church of America, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, the North American Association of Christians in Social Work and the NAACP.
