Background:

Dr. Robert Swan attended the Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University and finished his Doctorate in Public Administration and Policy (Criminology and Criminal Justice Track) in 2008. 

Robert teaches courses in research methods, policy analysis, policing policy, program evaluation, corrections, crime and popular culture and community collaboration.  His past teaching experiences have included Master’s and doctoral-level courses in criminal justice policy, administrative law and mass media. Robert’s research interests have included the study of Interstate Corrections Compacts, prison finance and budgeting policies, the effect of vicarious trauma on prosecutorial discretion in sex offender cases, counterterrorism study-abroad course development and collaboration, the efficacy of community and problem-oriented policing approaches in Federal Weed and Seed programs and the reentry experiences and behavioral effect of combat on veterans. 

Currently, Robert is continuing his research on correctional finance and budgeting and is in the process of completing three journal articles and two peer-reviewed books, one of which is a comprehensive textbook on the Oregon Criminal Justice System.
