Jorge Chavez

Associate Professor
  • School of Education & Human Development

Jorge M. Chavez joined the School of Education and Human Development in 2018 and was previously an associate professor in the Department of Sociology at Bowling Green State University. His research centers on integrating developmental, social, and environmental perspectives toward understanding problem behaviors, crime & violence, and mental health problems with a focus on the intersection of race/ethnicity and social structural disadvantage.

My recently published research has focused on (1) racial/ethnic inequalities in the transition to adulthood; 2) the etiology of problem behaviors and social and mental health problems; and 3) the effect of educational and local policy on immigrants and immigrant families.
