Carolyn Petrosino is Professor of Criminal Justice in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Bridgewater State University and was the founding chair of the Criminal Justice Department. She was appointed to the Massachusetts Juvenile Justice Advisory Council during the 1990s. In addition, she was invited to Capitol Hill in 2002 to participate in a Congressional Briefing on the state of hate crime research and public policy in the United States. She is a recipient of the 2003 Pro Humanitate Award from the Child Welfare Policy Center of the North American Resource Center for Child Welfare. She recently coauthored a book, American Corrections, which is now in its second edition. Her primary research focus is on hate crimes.
