Brief Biography of Dr. Greg M. Kim-Ju
Greg Kim-Ju received his BA in Psychology from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota and his Ph.D. in Cultural Psychology from Boston College. He later served as a community education volunteer for the Peace Corps in the Dominican Republic. As a recipient of a Fulbright fellowship, he turned his attention to the ways in which young adults in South Korea grapple with their collective identities. After receiving his Ph.D., Dr. Kim-Ju served as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Asian American Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston where he examined demographic, educational, and economic characteristics of Asian Americans in Massachusetts. In the Department of Psychology at California State University, Sacramento, Dr. Kim-Ju has been teaching courses on Cross-Cultural Psychology, Multicultural Psychology, and Community Psychology, and Qualitative Research. He conducts research on ethnic identity and psychological correlates and prevention and intervention programs that address academic performance and at-risk behavior. He started the SEL Project, a high-impact and multi-component community mobilization effort aimed at facilitating social and emotional skills with K-12 students, to address bullying and academic issues in public schools.
Reflections from the Lead Author
Dr. Kim-Ju and his research team of Zachary T Goodman and Susan Her experienced firsthand what many multicultural psychologists experience in recruiting ethnic minority participants in psychology. They spent nearly a year recruiting Hmong American participants by attending a number of events and workshops and visiting organizations in the Hmong community in the Greater Sacramento area.
