CDA Faculty

Most of the core and affiliated faculty in the CDA program have a background in applied psychological research (community, clinical, social), however, core faculty members include a sociologist and affiliated faculty span a wide variety of disciplines. All core and affiliated faculty are engaged in a variety of interdisciplinary teaching and professional activities. Faculty members are actively involved with many different interdisciplinary professional organizations (e.g., Society for Community Research and Action, Community Development Society, American Evaluation Association, Environmental Design Research Association, Urban Affairs Association) and publish in, and have done editorial work for, scholarly journals that attract authors and readers from a wide variety of disciplines. Courses, theses, and research and consulting projects by faculty and students involve work that is practical and inherently interdisciplinary with local (primarily urban) public and private agencies.
