Professional Background

JoAnne M. Malloy is a Research Associate Professor at the Institute on Disability at the University of New Hampshire. Dr. Malloy received a Master’s Degree in Social Work Administration and Planning from the University of Tennessee in 1981 and a Doctorate of Philosophy in Education from the University of New Hampshire in April 2011. She joined the staff of Institute on Disability (NH’s University Center for Excellence in Disability) in 1991 and has directed several state and federally-funded youth transition, employment, and dropout prevention projects with a focus on youth with emotional and behavioral disorders and implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and School Mental Health. In 1996, she developed a transition and career development planning model for youth with emotional and behavioral disorders, known as RENEW (Rehabilitation, Empowerment, natural supports, Education, and Work). RENEW has since been replicated in educational, mental health and juvenile detention settings in New Hampshire and 6 other states, producing positive educational, vocational, and behavioral health outcomes. Dr. Malloy has published numerous articles and book chapters on employment and transition for youth with emotional disorders and adults with mental illness, and teaches at the undergraduate and graduate level at the University of New Hampshire.
