Community of Practice Fellow, Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Meet Tammie Green


Tammie Green is a Community of Practice Fellow, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for the ALL IN Campus Democracy Challenge at Civic Nation.

As the Principal and Founding Director of Narrative Guru Consulting, Tammie Green has served secondary and post-secondary students through strategically designed, social action-driven programming for 20 years. Due to her creative training and multidisciplinary experience, Ms. Green’s projects are typically implemented at the intersection of the arts and social and/or policy reform. In all, her belief in understanding backstory as the catalyst for deeply defining purpose is central to her design practices. 

For two years, Tammie Green was a Strategic Project Consultant, and subsequently the Director for Next Generation Service Initiatives at the Volcker Alliance, an organization founded by former Federal Reserve Chairman, Paul A. Volcker. There, she provided technical assistance, growth strategies, and creative guidance to 18 network schools in development while also designing tailored, student-centered programming.

Leading into these positions, Ms. Green directed the design and development of the Social Action Alliance (SAA) at Georgia State University. Under her leadership, three courses were created, in one year, to form a new credential, the Certificate in Collective Social Action. Of the three courses, Ms. Green designed and taught the foundation-setting course, Cultivating Changemakers, which aimed to develop socially conscious, active collaborators who align and engage their personal and professional skills to impact social change.

Previously, Ms. Green designed a media campaign for Howard University’s HU-ADVANCE-IT initiative, supported by the National Science Foundation, that highlighted the importance of placement and advancement of women professors in STEM disciplines. She also created the Young FilmMakers Intensive (YFI), a two-week camp dedicated to incorporating social injustice into film development and production, specifically targeting high school students with financial barriers to creative summer programming. She directed YFI and taught screenwriting. 

Ms. Green earned a Bachelor of Arts in radio/TV/film from Howard University, a Master of Fine Arts in professional writing from the Savannah College of Art and Design, a Master of Fine Arts in screenwriting from National University, and a Master of Public Administration, with a nonprofit concentration, from Georgia State University.
