About Me


My name is Dontá Council. I am a third year doctoral student at Old Dominion University in the School of Public Service majoring in Public Administration and Policy. As a policy scholar, I engage in research, teaching, and practice of issues that are related both the public and nonprofit sectors. My policy areas are in public management, emergency management, nonprofit management, climate change, and social equity. By using both quantitative and qualitative analyses, I am able to answer questions that inform both research and practice that enhance the quality of life of the communities that we serve.
