Faculty Profile: Jerry Himelstein
Jerry Himelstein, whose Ph.D. in Sociology is from Louisiana State University, has joined the full-time faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Behavioral Sciences Department.
In Louisiana he was a research analyst for the Bureau for Governmental Research. He was also a senior investigative researcher and regional director for the Anti-Defamation League in New Orleans, where he helped pass new hate crime laws in Mississippi and Louisiana.
Since his relocation to Vermont from New Orleans after hurricane Katrina, he has been community outreach coordinator for Vermont Legal Aid.
In his leisure time, Himelstein enjoys playing cards, fishing, reading and movies. “I look on teaching as an evolving conversation where the conversation is many-sided and not totally structured,” said Himelstein. He lives in Essex.
