Professor Omari Simmons, director of the law school’s Business Law Program, has written the book, “College Access from the Ground-Up: Narratives Transformed,” a forthcoming Rutgers University Press publication.

According to Professor Simmons, “’College Access from the Ground-Up: Narratives Transformed’ contextualizes the experience of one college access organization, the Simmons Memorial Foundation (SMF), within the broader realm of existing education practice, academic theory, and public policy.”

The book contains unfiltered reflections from in-depth interviews with vulnerable students as they navigate the important decision of whether and where to attend college.

Professor Simmons is a recognized scholar on corporate governance and education policy. He is a member of the American Law Institute and the Executive Director of the Simmons Memorial Foundation (SMF), a nonprofit organization that provides college consulting services and mentoring to vulnerable students. He recently authored, “Judging the Public Benefit Corporation,” a chapter in “The Cambridge Handbook of Social Enterprise Law,” a forthcoming Cambridge University Press publication.
