Susan T. Krumholz received her J.D. from Seattle University and her Ph.D. in Law, Policy and Society from Northeastern University. She is presently Chair of the Crime and Justice Studies major and Vice President of the Faculty Federation.
Professor Krumholz’ research and publication interests include intimate violence, alternatives to the criminal/legal system, and women as students and practitioners of the law. Her recent publications include an article on Therapeutic Jurisprudence and a chapter on Specialized Courts. She is presently co-authoring a series of textbooks in Crime, Law and Justice Studies, Learning Through Cases.
Professor Krumholz is most passionate about the classes she teaches at the Bristol County House of Corrections as part of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program. These classes bring together students at UMD with incarcerated students for semester-long study. For this work she received the 2008 UMass President’s Public Service Award. Classes she teaches (in and out of jail) include Law and Society, Crime, Justice and Policy, Men and Masculinities, Peace Studies, and Women and Social Policy.
