Boston College School of Social Work Assistant Professor Jessica Shaw has been awarded a $313,558 grant by the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) Office on Violence Against Women for her project “Evaluation of a Cross-System Cooperative Response to Adolescent Sexual Assault Victims.” It is the first time a BCSSW professor has earned a grant from the DOJ.
Rosales, who expects to graduate this coming August, counts health access and disparities among Latino populations as his research interests. He is writing a dissertation with the working title “If You Build it, Will They Come? Assessing the Structural and Social Characteristics of Hispanic Serving Organizations.”
Boston College School of Social Work Dean Gautam Yadama played an instrumental role in bringing the two institutions together; a BCSSW team is already working with IITB on a project designed to provide clean renewable energy to low resource areas of rural India.
Associate Professor Scott Easton has contributed a chapter to the recently released book Understanding the Sexual Betrayal of Boys & Men, edited by renowned psychologist and psychoanalyst Richard B. Gartner. In this Q&A with Innovate, Easton discusses what it means to have been included in the project.
