Heather Hensman Kettrey

Associate Professor of Sociology, Clemson University

Heather Hensman Kettrey is a sociologist whose research focuses on power, violence, and inequality specifically as they pertain to gender, sexuality, and race. Her most recent large-scale project is a meta-analysis that examines the effects of college sexual assault prevention programs on perpetration, victimization, and attitudes regarding sexual assault (with Co-Investigator Martie Thompson). Dr. Kettrey’s research has been funded by the Campbell Collaboration, March of Dimes, Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women, and Bureau of Justice Administration. She remains committed to using empirical science to understand and alleviate tangible social problems and is always looking for student research collaborators.
