Dr. Kellina M. Craig-Henderson
NSF Program Director in Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Science, Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences
As a Program Director, I had the opportunity to draft a response to a Senator who raised questions about work that was being conducted and supported in the social sciences at NSF. I crafted the response to the Senator and was able to see the words I had written circulating among Social Science Advocacy Groups. After 6 years serving as a Program Director, I applied and was selected for the Deputy Division Director position and subsequently transitioned to management.
