Biography

Dr. Stephanie Howells started at the University of Guelph as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology in 2014. She teaches various undergraduate courses, and conducts research related to education, crime and violence.  Her current research examines the relationships between School Resource Officers and the schools they are working with.  See what she has to say about her time at McMaster:

McMaster Sociology has a special place in my heart. I graduated from the PhD program in 2013. My doctoral research focused on the cultural and organizational processes that lead to inflated perceptions of school violence, and seemingly disproportionate policy responses. During my time as a graduate student I was really involved in the department. I was the Graduate Caucus Chair and a member of various committees (student representative on the Graduate Committee, a member of the social committee, co-coordinator of the mentoring program for incoming graduate students, and a member of the TA Network). McMaster Sociology offers ample opportunities for students to learn and grow both within and outside of the classroom—taking advantage of these opportunities helped prepare me for a job in academia.
