Ph.D. Candidate, Boston University; M.A., UMass Boston
Taylor Hall is a doctoral candidate currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Sociology and Social Work, a program from which she graduates this year! Currently, she is a full-time lecturer in Sociology at Emmanuel College, teaching classes such as Intro to Anthropology, Deviance and Social Control, and Social Policy. In the past, she worked as a Senior Data Analyst at the Center for Addictions Research and Services. Her dissertation work focuses on barriers to substance abuse, mental health, and physical health services post release for drug users who have been incarcerated. Professor Hall graduated with an M.A. in Applied Sociology and a certificate in Forensic Services from UMass Boston. Professor Hall has a strong background in evaluation research for both SAMHSA and BJA grants. As a member of the National Organization of Forensic Social Workers (NOFSW) and an activist for social justice reform throughout the city of Boston, her research interests include the cycle of incarceration, reentry, and recidivism for drug users, as well as bridging the gap of services offered in prisons and the community for offenders as they leave prison.
What I Love About Emmanuel:
I love that the students at Emmanuel College are intrigued about what is happening in their community and want to be part of social justice reform.
