Jennifer Craft Morgan, PhD
Lead, Workforce Aging Program
Dr. Morgan is Lead of the Workforce Aging Program and a Scientist at the Institute on Aging.
She is lead co-principal investigator, with Thomas R. Konrad, PhD for the Evaluation of the Jobs to Careers: Promoting Work-Based Learning for Quality Care Program. Jobs to Careers is a national initiative of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in collaboration with the Hitachi Foundation. Jobs to Careers seeks to establish systems that train, develop, reward, and advance current frontline health and health care workers to improve the quality of care and ensure the quality of services provided to patients and communities. In related work, she is working with the Health Work Force Institute at the Washington State Hospital Association on a study funded by the Hitachi Foundation to document the work of pioneer hospitals and health systems who are investing in career advancement and ‘grow your own’ strategies for frontline health care workers.
Dr. Morgan is also co-principal investigator of Workforce Issues in Library and Information Science (WILIS) 2 and WILIS 3 with Joanne Gard Marshall, PhD lead principal investigator on these library workforce projects (www.wilis.unc.edu). These projects focus on the development of a recent LIS graduate career tracking model and developing a data sharing system that all LIS programs could potentially use.
Dr. Morgan is also principal investigator of two new studies in workforce aging. The UNC Evaluating Innovations in Nursing Education (funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation) study seeks to understand the role of state-based loan repayment and scholarship programs in the recruitment and retention of Nurse Faculty (an older than average profession). For the second new project, Dr. Morgan will lead the evaluation for the Personal Home Care Aide State Training program project funded by HRSA and housed at the NC Department of Health and Human Services.
Dr. Morgan was also involved in other workforce and evaluation studies in the Institute including the Workforce Aging in the New Economy (WANE) project, The Lifelong Libraries Evaluation, the STEP UP NOW project from the Better Jobs Better Care program and with the long-standing WIN A STEP UP program.
