Dr. Claude Joseph

Claude Joseph is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Policy. He earned his Ph.D. in Public Policy from the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy at The New School, where he was awarded a full merit-based scholarship as well as the Isador Lubin Fellowship. Puzzled by the management and the impact of the humanitarian and recovery funding disbursed in Haiti in response to the 2010 deadly earthquake, he has decided to center his research around areas of policy evaluation, socioeconomic development, and the political economy of foreign aid and institutions.

Dr. Joseph has extensive teaching experience at both graduate and undergraduate institutions of higher education. He has been successful at tutoring at-risk undergraduate students in an effort to reinforce their academic integrity and retention. Prior to joining UConn’s faculty, Dr. Joseph held adjunct teaching positions at different colleges and universities including Fordham University, Lehman College, LIU Brooklyn, and FIT of the State University of New York. For the Academic Year 2017-2018, he held a Visiting Assistant Professor position in the MPA program at LIU Brooklyn, where he used a student-centered approach in teaching, which fosters dialogue and encourages input among diverse students in an effort to accomplish teaching excellence and student success.
