Jennifer Hartman teaches courses in Research Methods, and Introduction to Criminal Justice in the undergraduate curriculum and Race, Gender and Justice, at the graduate and undergraduate curriculum. In terms of her research interests, she has published articles and received grants to fund research in two broadly defined areas.
The first area of research involves studying gender research as it is related to crime and victimization. In general, she is interested in researching crimes of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and prostitution. In particular, she is interested in exploring a “best practices” approach to how police and courts can effectively deal with these crimes.
A second area of research involves understanding the theoretical and empirical explorations of undergraduate education as it deals with cheating and retention issues.
She currently serves on or is a consultant to multiple local community committees, including the Domestic Violence Advocacy Council; Women’s Issue Committee for the League of Women Voters; Violence Committee for the Women’s Summit and is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the UNC Charlotte Women and Gender Program.
