Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

Her areas of expertise include the general areas of deviant behavior and gerontology, with special interest in the sociology of mental illness and substance use and abuse among older adults.

Research Interests

In 2015, Dr. Rosenberg worked on a grant awarded to the Racine Vocational Ministry (RVM) to assess the stress levels of ex-offenders released to the community from prison in four census tracts in Racine. She was principle evaluator on the Lifecourse Initiative for Healthy Futures (LIHF) supported through the Wisconsin Partnership Program. Her focus was on adjustment of African Americans. Other research interests revolve around community based learning (CBL). She has published in areas that assess the impact of CBL on retention and is now examining the needs of community partners to develop programmatic changes to address those needs. Her recent research examines factors that impact persistence for students at the university and works with administrators at UWM to apply a rubric of competencies for CBL that can be presented in the capstone e-portfolio.
