Professor Ronda has long-standing interests in deviance and social control, as well as criminal justice and social justice. She has taught courses in sociology, criminology, urban studies, and theories of justice. She has also taught courses in prison, at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, New York State's maximum-security women's prison, in the Marymount Manhattan College Bedford Hills College Program. In addition, she has taught courses in prison that combine "outside" college students with incarcerated college students, having been trained by the Inside-Out Center at Temple University. Professor Ronda is also a member of the Research Committee of the Inside-Out Prison Exchange Program®. Professor Ronda is currently working on a research project that explores the impact of these combined, or inside-out-type courses, on students, faculty, higher education institutions, and prisons. Professor Ronda earned her BA from Queens College/CUNY in 1989, and her PhD in Sociology from the CUNY Graduate Center in 2011. She is thrilled to be a CUNY alum who has come full circle as a faculty member.
