Tuesday Talks: Dr. Jessica Grosholz, Criminology

Each Tuesday, we sit down with members of the faculty to discuss their expertise, recent research and some of their accomplishments. This week, USFSM takes a closer look at Dr. Jessica Grosholz.

Dr. Jessica Grosholz is an Assistant Professor of Criminology at USF Sarasota-Manatee, with expertise in prison reentry, recidivism, corrections, and qualitative methodology. She received her M.A. from George Washington University in 2006 and her Ph.D. from Emory University in 2014; both in Sociology with a focus in Criminology. Prior to USFSM, she was an instructor at Emory University, where she taught criminology and community-building courses. She has also been an advocate for formerly incarcerated persons in the Atlanta region.  When Jess is not hanging out with current and former offenders, you can find her cheering on her favorite sports teams – the Miami Dolphins, the Atlanta Braves, the Georgia Bulldogs and now, the USF Bulls.
