Dr. Carrie A. Moylan earned her MSW from the University of Michigan and her PhD from the University of Washington. Dr. Moylan has 17 years of experience in social work, primarily in the fields of domestic and sexual violence, both as a practitioner and as a researcher. Dr. Moylan's program of research focuses on the promotion of effective, evidence-based, and trauma-informed interventions, policies, and services aimed at preventing sexual violence and responding to the needs of sexual violence survivors.
Currently, Dr. Moylan is engaged in a number of research projects focused on both sexual violence prevention and campus sexual assault policy implementation at colleges and universities. She is serving as the lead local evaluator for the Region 6 Center for Sexual Violence Prevention, a five-year, $975,000 grant to provide community-based sexual assault prevention in Erie, Monroe, and Niagara Counties in western New York State. She has also conducted research on the functioning of multidisciplinary Sexual Assault Response Teams -- for which she was awarded the Society for Social Work and Research Outstanding Social Work Doctoral Dissertation Award -- and research on outcomes associated with childhood exposure to domestic violence in the home.
She is a member of the Broome County Family Violence Prevention Council, the State University of New York (SUNY) Sexual Violence Prevention Project (Climate Survey Group), and the Binghamton University Personal Safety Advisory Committee.
