An affiliate faculty member of the Resilient Youth Initiative, the Transcultural Conflict and Violent Extremism Initiative, and the Georgia State Partnership for Urban Health Research, Dr. Glover's research looks at conversations about ethnicity, race and culture within families.

Her work also examines the culturally distinctive family processes that lessen the impact of risk behaviors for African-American and Latino-American young adults.
