Professor Edwina Dorch came to the Bush School from the University at Albany, New York, where she had appointments with both Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy and the School of Social Welfare. These appointments involved teaching and performing cost-benefit analyses and policy implementation analyses for two New York State Offices and for New York City’s Human Resources Administration (i.e., Public Welfare Department). Her work on these projects was published the Journal of Health & Social Policy.
While at the Bush School from 2007 to 2012, she taught in-residence policy formation, program evaluation, social welfare policy, diversity and capstone courses. She also taught online courses during that period and continues to do so now. She has also served as one of four program evaluators on a National Science Foundation ADVANCE grant (intended to increase the number of women in the STEM sciences).
Before her service with the University of Albany, she was an Administrative Researcher for Los Angeles County, California. In that capacity, she was responsible for creating statistics and management reports and approving and monitoring child welfare research contracts with area universities (UCLA, USC and Cal-State Los Angeles and Cal-State Long Beach).
Professor Dorch has numerous peer-reviewed publications and has presented at multiple conferences. She is also involved in various professional organizations and community service activities.
She earned her PhD in psychology from the University of Colorado in Boulder, and her MA and BA in psychology from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
