Professor Joyce Kraus

Assistant Professor of Social Work

I look for the strengths in students in order to find direction to help them learn. I believe in teaching students to think, question and discover for themselves in order to best integrate the curriculum into real world practice.

I am the very proud mother of three children: Jack, Joe and Emily. I enjoy running, traveling, shopping and spending time with family and friends. I am active in my church, have been an assistant coach for the cross country team for my children’s grade school the past three years and am looking forward to beginning a Doctorate of Social Work program in 2018.
