Join us for this semester’s Mastering the Craft of Research!
Jeronimo Cortina, associate professor of political science, will interview Suzanne Pritzker, associate professor of social work, about political social work ahead of this year’s election.
Dr. Pritzker began her professional career as a policy advisor for the Virginia Secretary of Education and as an analyst for the Virginia General Assembly. With a front-line view of the policy-making process, she developed a passion for educating and empowering vulnerable populations to participate in and influence public policy development and implementation. Her scholarship investigates how young people become civically involved and practice interventions to increase their empowerment and their engagement. Her research has focused on the impacts of interventions such as community-based participatory research, in the form of Photovoice, and service-learning on youth’s civic engagement.
