Assistant Professor Receives NIJ Funding for Research


Dr. Brent Klein was awarded funding from the National Institute of Justice to support his research project titled Investigating Root Causes of School Violence: A Case Control Study of School Violent Offenders, Youth Violent Offenders, and Non-Offending Youths. The study is designed to identify potential root causes and related factors that contribute to school violence and then use these findings to devise strategies and programs to promote student and school safety. The project is set to begin January 2021. More information about the study can be found on the NIJ website.

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Klein on this achievement!
