Charlie Barlow

Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and Programs

Since joining the ACM in early September, Barlow has focused on strategic planning as part of the organization’s efforts to reimagine its mission and its programmatic concepts for faculty, staff, students and member services. 

Barlow is especially focused on building new student programs. This includes looking for ways to provide students with more civic engagement opportunities that address pervasive social problems, both where the programs take place and back on the home campuses.

Barlow previously served in various academic, policy research and civic engagement capacities for the University of Chicago, Roosevelt University, and housing-focused non-profit organizations in Chicago and beyond. He was a 2018 Equity Fellow in Chicago and continues to serve on the board of directors for the National Public Housing Museum.

An alumnus of UChicago, Barlow later conducted doctoral research in geography at Trinity College at the University of Cambridge in England. He held a series of academic appointments at UChicago, then directed Roosevelt University’s Policy Research Collaborative to develop new experiential and applied research and teaching opportunities with civic partners across the United States.
