Moritz College of Law included in RAISE Initiative to hire tenure-track faculty
Apr. 28, 2022
Through the Race, Inclusion and Social Equity (RAISE) initiative, Ohio State is enhancing our world-class research program on race, inclusion and social equity. Over the next decade, the university will add at least 50 tenure-track faculty members to existing scholars whose research can help to narrow social disparities in educational attainment, health outcomes, rates of incarceration, political representation, environmental impacts and economic well-being.
By attracting a cohort of early career and senior scholars, the College of Arts and Sciences, Moritz College of Law and John Glenn College of Public Affairs will enhance research at the intersection of race, criminal justice and public affairs. By collaborating with one another and existing Ohio State faculty, the cohort of new faculty will study how to improve police-citizen interactions and law-enforcement practices more generally, prosecutorial and judicial decision-making, and the effectiveness of other criminal justice institutions.
