Our faculty members not only teach they attend national meetings and present papers!

On Thursday, March 23rd, Dr. Roe Roberts will be a member of a

Roundtable discussion for the Policy and Public Administration Section of the Southwestern Political Science Association conference in New Orleans. Her topic will be on the efficient uses of “Program Resources”.

Dr. Kirk Harlow is currently involved in several research projects. He is working with Bernards Township Health Department in New Jersey on a study of middle- and high school-students’ and their capacity to resist problem behavior such as substance abuse. The initial focus of the project is assessing the presence among the students of “protective” factors such as parental involvement and teacher support. Dr. Harlow also is working on a project evaluating the effectiveness of a brief employee assistance program intervention on employee assistance program clients. He will be presenting the initial results of this research at two conferences this spring, the Employee Assistance Roundtable and the Employee Assistance Society of North American.
