Lynn Clemmons Morris' research and practice has focused on community-based strategies for addressing causes of persistent rural poverty, empowering women, and promoting sustainable community development that reduces social and economic inequality. Dr. Morris has contributed to the establishment of a scholarship in memory of her relative Ellen Gates Starr, who co-founded Hull House with Jane Addams.
Dr. Morris' spouse, Judson Morris, graduated from the SSW in 1971. He believes his social work education was one of the pivotal events of his life. From Chicago, he practices in many urban and rural areas. He focused on the values of equity, community organization, and developing relationships that lead to purposeful and intentional change (such as: establishing a community health care clinic, community change initiative, increasing educational opportunities, and political and social change).
