Research Interests

 Danielle Hicks is interested in the needs of individuals exiting incarceration, as well as the role of aftercare programs in addressing these needs, reducing recidivism, and allowing for successful integration back into the community. However, very few jail aftercare programs exist. While there is research support for aftercare programs with prison populations, little research has examined the specific needs of jail populations post-release. Danielle hopes to research the needs of jail populations specifically, as well as work toward developing an aftercare program that addresses these needs and works to reduce recidivism.

We will create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities.
