The Iona College Center for Social Research is a multi-disciplinary institute established by the Departments of Social Work and Sociology. The Center is located in the Social Work Department on campus and currently serves as evaluator for programs in Westchester and The Bronx.
The Center for Social Research was established to actualize the College's mission through service to Iona and the local community.
Our purpose is threefold:
1) To represent Iona College as a center of academic learning and research.
2) To bring Iona College and the community together in an effort to better understand the nature of local issues.
3) To provide students and faculty with research opportunities as they apply to issues of community concern.
The Center can provide a range of services and research modalities . While most of the Center's current projects focus on program evaluation, the following services are also available: telephone surveys, mail surveys, needs assessment, particpating action research, focus groups, qualitative studies, outcomes assessment, data collection and analysis, seminars and workshops on social issues.
The Center for Social Research is a non-profit organization. Any fees charged for projects represent actual costs for services rendered.
Dr. Meryl Nadel, Department of Social Work, directs the Center. Faculty members from a number of departments are available for projects, depending upon the expertise required by each study.
Faculty associates include:
·Dr. Jeanne Matich-Maroney
