About the Director
Dr. Gilmore has over 20 years of teaching and research experience, specifically in the area of survey research, and her Ph.D. in Criminology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania specifically prepared her to problem-solve using theory and data. Her work with criminal justice agencies all over the country and internationally has prepared her to help solve real-world problems with the application of that theory and data. Although her publications deal with all aspects of justice, they primarily focus on policies and programs, the measurement of concepts related to justice practice, to the implications of those policies and programs, and to the application of potential solutions to various agency and social problems.
About the Staff
We have interviewers with extensive experience working with local, regional, and national survey organizations. The interviewers objectively and professionally conduct the surveys to obtain accurate data. Interviewers are given extensive background training on each survey project. In addition, MSRC has bilingual interviewer capacity and would be happy to work with you to address your needs in accessing the growing Latino population with your survey.
Given that we are a teaching university, we also hire highly qualified and trained graduate students with interest in research and a small group of hand-selected, highly-qualified and trained undergraduate students. One important purpose of the MSRC is to provide the opportunity for students interested in pursuing advanced degrees or interested in assisting agencies with internal research, to obtain real experience working with real agencies to solve real problems. Undergraduate students are hired as student workers and paid an hourly rate, whereas graduate students may get both hourly rates and tuition waivers, depending on the rate structure agreement between the MSRC and the client.
