He also currently serves as coordinator of the C. Eric Lincoln Lectureship Series and co-chair of the University Ceremonials Committee. He is a renowned religious scholar, motivational speaker and pastor. The veteran professor is a member of the American Academy of Religion and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
