The Center on Domestic Violence is proud to give back to the community and provide unique opportunities for our students and the community at large to network and explore critical issues related to gender-based violence.
These full-day workshops are open to the public and take place twice a year. Distinguished presenters will lead you deeper into topics chosen to challenge and expand your understanding of gender-based violence.
The Education Series is also included in our Cohort Experience. Learn About the Cohort Experience.

Shannon Harper earned an MPA with a concentration in Domestic Violence (currently the concentration in Gender-Based Violence) in 2011 (Cohort 9) and then pursued doctoral studies from the Department of Criminology, Law, and Justice at the University of Illinois at Chicago beginning in 2014. She recently completed her doctorate degree and has been hired into a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in the Sociology Department at Iowa State University (ISU) beginning in the fall of 2019. Shannon is also affiliate faculty with the Latino/a Studies Program at ISU.
Shannon's research explores how women at risk of homicide in their intimate relationships seek assistance for abuse, as well as intimate partner homicide/homicide trends across neighborhoods. Her work broadly examines how the criminal justice system addresses violence against women and how marginalization and structural deprivation shape women's experiences of violence. Shannon's published works can be found in Feminist Criminology, Sociology Compass and the Journal of School Violence. Congratulations Shannon!
