Faculty Research

Several members of the Mills faculty who teach public policy have conducted research that is typical of the work done in this field. Professor Emerita Carol Chetkovich has studied the workings of affirmative action policy in the urban fire service, and her book on the subject is widely used by public managers trying to enhance diversity in uniformed services. Dr. Chetkovich has also produced several reports for federal and state government agencies in a number of social service areas, including childcare, healthcare, and services for people with disabilities. Her most recent work (with coauthor Frances Kunreuther of the Building Movement Project) is a book that explores the social-change work of small nonprofit organizations. This work is intended to inform nonprofit activists, funders, and researchers seeking to understand and support this sector.

Professor Siobhan Reilly has conducted a number of studies relating to family and child well-being, including work on welfare policy, child support, family structure and living arrangements, resource allocation within the family, and the risks of infant formula use. Her work has been supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and has significant implications for a number of social policies.

Among other Mills faculty, Professor Lorien Rice has reported on education and transportation policy for the Public Policy Institute of California, and Professor Mark Henderson contributed to strategic planning for the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
