Associate Professor Andrea Hetling Named University Chancellor's Scholar

June 20, 2016

One of the initiatives of the Rutgers-New Brunswick Strategic Plan in 2015 was the creation of a Chancellor’s Excellence Fund, which calls for the designation of a select group of faculty members at the associate professor level as “Chancellor’s Scholars.” These individuals are nominated by their deans, and will carry the designation of “Chancellor Scholar” for up to five years. They also receive a research grant. Associate professor Andrea Hetling was the second scholar chosen from the Bloustein School–associate professor Stephanie Curenton was selected in 2015. Her research agenda focuses on the implementation and efficacy of U.S. social welfare policies. She is particularly interested in how public programs and policies can support economic well-being and financial stability among vulnerable populations. Her projects focus on families and women living in deep poverty and on low-income survivors of intimate partner violence, groups who often experience barriers to accessing the very programs designed to help them.
