Rachel Fusco, PhD’08

  • Associate Professor, University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work

“The PhD program at the Penn School of Social Policy & Practice allowed me to build essential writing, teaching, and analytical skills on the foundation of my previous social work practice. The multidisciplinary nature of the program allowed me to become a well-rounded scholar, and helped confirm my commitment to the field of social work. I received the guidance and support I needed to complete a dissertation I am proud of, and I felt well-prepared and confident during the job interview process. Currently I am an Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh, where I use the knowledge and skills developed at SP2 to help educate and mentor the next generation of social workers.”
