Dr. Tyner’s research focuses on social justice movements, organizational leadership, diversity, civil rights, and community development. She is an advisory board member of the Children’s Defense Fund-MN, a board member on the ABA Council for Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Educational Pipeline, and was a prior board member of the HOPE Community Center. Dr. Tyner received her Ed.D. in Leadership from the University of Saint Thomas College of Education in 2012 and her J.D. from the same university in 2006.

Join us when the next Emerging Scholars Webinar will feature Dr. Tyner. The webinar will focus on the social and economic impacts of incarceration on children, families, communities, and offenders. Dr. Tyner has employed qualitative research to gain a deeper understanding of the lived experience of those who come in contact with the criminal justice system. She will include examples from her work related to the Campaign for Prison Phone Justice (addressing the high costs of prison phone calls) and addressing re-entry barriers (creating equal access to jobs, housing, voting). Dr. Tyner will demonstrate how these research findings have been used to promote community engagement and advance policy changes.
