PhD, University of Rochester

Joyce Duckles conducts research on family engagement and community development through grounded theory and participatory research practices. Most recently, her scholarship interests include a four-year ethnographic collaborative project on community transformation and a qualitative exploration of the transition of older adults from the Emergency Department to home and the community. She has presented widely on the relational strategies and models of transformation emerging from both of these projects, on supporting neighborhood and family well-being, and on the inequalities and disparities across community and health through re-framing notions of collaborative research and publicly engaged scholarship.

Duckles serves on the parental involvement advisory committee formed by the Rochester City School District Board of Education in 2014. She earned her doctorate in human development from the University of Rochester in 2012. In the News
