NYU Wagner welcomes two outstanding faculty members
NYU Wagner is pleased to welcome two talented new faculty members: Domingo Morel and Jacob Victory.
Domingo Morel’s research encompasses racial and ethnic politics, urban politics, education politics and public policy. He is the author of Takeover: Race, Education, and American Democracy (2018, Oxford University Press), which won the W.E.B. Du Bois Distinguished Book Award. He also co-edited Latino Mayors: Power and Political Change in the Postindustrial City (2018, Temple University Press).
His forthcoming book, Developing Scholars: Race, Politics, and the Pursuit of Higher Education (Oxford University Press) examines the history and politics of college access programs created for students of color in the 1960s. The book challenges conventional wisdom about the role of protest in creating and maintaining policy and introduces a perspective on affirmative action policy that has received less attention from scholars, legal analysists, and practitioners.
Morel received his Ph.D. in political science from Brown University in 2014, and joins Wagner as Associate Professor Political Science and Public Service.
Jacob Victory, Adjunct Associate Professor of Health Policy and Management and faculty co-director of the NYU Law and NYU Wagner Master of Science in Health Law and Strategy program, has an extensive background in these disciplines and fields. Serving as an advisor to Recora Health, a technology company that focuses on cardiac recovery, he previously was the President of Medicaid Home Care for BAYADA Home Health Care, with responsibilities in nine states and markets across 55 offices, serving 5,900 long term care patients daily with an employee base of 6,000 team members.
Among his wide-ranging professional experiences, Victory also held executive positions at the Visiting Nurse Service of New York (VNSNY), where his last position was Vice President of Performance Management Projects, focusing on implementing health care reform initiatives tied to new care delivery models and on organization-wide initiatives tasked with enhancing operational efficiencies.
He has had three health management case studies published in a graduate school textbook: Health Management Services: Cases, Readings and Commentary. He is also an abstract painter, and has had two SoHo art exhibitions. Victory holds a BA in English Literature, with honors, from Rutgers University, and an MPA in Health Policy and Management from Wagner.
