Maureen Ellis-Davis is an Associate Professor of Sociology at the Department of Social Sciences. She has taught Sociology and Anthropology courses at Bergen
since 2009, face-to-face, online, and in hybrid formats. She is co-chair of the Black History Month Committee, a member of the Faculty Senate, and a member of the President’s Diversity,
Equity and Inclusion Steering Committee. Dr. Ellis-Davis began her professional career as an applied research sociologist investigating social issues impacting maternal and child health along with patterns and consequences of international migration trends, primarily in developing nations. As an applied sociologist with the NYS Office of Mental Health she conducted investigations of stress and coping skills developed and utilized by deinstitutionalized chronic mentally ill individuals and their families. Her more recent research interests build on previous work in migration trends and the immigrant’s experiences through examinations of cultural adaptations, ethnic identity, stress and coping skills among immigrant populations in the U.S.; specifically, among second and third generation descendants of African Americans, Afro-Caribbean and Black African immigrants.
