Colleen Casey Ph.D.
Associate Professor in the School of Urban and Public Affairs
Dr. Casey is an Associate Professor in the School of Urban and Public Affairs (SUPA) at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). Her research interests related to sustainability emphasize the dimensions of social sustainability, particularly as it relates to community and economic development policy. She has a PhD in Public Policy Analysis and Administration and teaches graduate level courses in the College of Architecture, Planning and Public Affairs (CAPPA). She is trained in the use of both quantitative and qualitative research methods of policy analysis. Her research interests focus on policies, programs and strategies that aim to create livable, healthy and equitable communities.
Specific research interests include public participation and community engagement; coordination and collaboration in service provision; and the evaluation of policies and programs aimed at achieving equitable, sustainable outcomes. Some of the outlets in which her research has been published include the Journal of Planning Education Research, Urban Affairs Review, American Review of Public Administration, Economic Development Quarterly, Social Science Quarterly, Public Works Management and Policy, along with a number of selected edited books. Her grant experience includes serving as a CO-PI on a project funded by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) titled, “Linking Transportation Planning with Public Health: An Ecological-Based Paradigm for Institutional Collaboration”.
She is also CO-PI on two research projects sponsored by the Western Michigan University (WMU) Transportation Research Center for Livable Communities (TRCLC), one of 32 University Transportation Centers (UTCs) funded by the US DOT. One project focuses on the development of performance measures to capture the effects of transportation facilities on multiple public health outcomes in school zones and the other focuses on the development of crowdsourcing applications to improve pedestrian safety.
