Jamillah A. Douthet
AMUS / Urban Safety
Jamillah joined the center in September 2018 as a research technician, bringing over 13 years of community outreach experience. In May of 2018, she graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy, Magna Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Arts in Developmental Psychology. In addition to her program, she was also an undergraduate researcher in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) - funded, BUILD program at UDM, in a cross consortium with WSU – she has always been a part of the WSU family! During this time, Jamillah was instrumental in the design of two research projects – one in health disparities, and one in education. This experience instilled a strong desire to continue in the research field, particularly, public health. She will be applying to graduate school at WSU for admission next fall.
Currently, Jamillah works as a coordinator for the Center’s AmeriCorps Urban Safety Program, overseeing five areas. Working at the Center allows Jamillah to give back to the residents of Detroit, in a capacity that implements change on a larger scale. Jamillah and her husband reside in the city of Detroit with their two sons.
