"Promote Smart Decarceration" is one of the Grand Challenges for Social Work. It entails the development, implementation, and testing of innovations to reduce incarceration rates in ways that are effective, sustainable, and socially just. In order for decarceration interventions to have real world impact, collaborative research, practice, and policy partnerships must be forged.

Colloquium presenters are Matthew W. Epperson, PhD, Associate Professor at the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago, and Carrie Pettus-Davis, PhD, Assistant Professor at Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. They are the founding co-directors of the Smart Decarceration Initiative and are the co-leads of the Promoting Smart Decarceration Grand Challenge Network. (Learn more about the speakers here.)

In this colloquium, they will:

  • Discuss their current multi-site study of deferred prosecution programs, with a focus on implementation and rigorous testing of an intervention with high potential for decarceration outcomes.
  • Describe their work to prepare the profession of social work for decarceration leadership via the organization and integration of efforts in social work practice, policy, research, and education.
  • Conclude with a discussion of lessons learned and future directions in the formation of cross-sector partnerships to advance research impact.

Co-sponsored by the Mandel School Office of Research Administration and the Doctoral Program.
