Welcome to my faculty webpage!

Dr. Wilkinson is a criminologist and expert on urban youth violence, community processes, and violence prevention. Her work on understanding the decision making of shooters has been used to develop and refine gun violence prevention strategies around the country. In addition to her research activities, Dr. Wilkinson is working in close partnership with faith- and civic-leaders to build an evidence-based community focused effort to reduce serious violence in Columbus, Ohio.  To find out more about this initiative please visit http://csiknowledgecenter.osu.edu/cvpc-ceasefire/ .  If you would like to make a donate to support CVPC CeaseFire Columbus, an effective evidence-based initiative to stop shootings and killings, please pledge today.  No gift is too small.   https://www.giveto.osu.edu/igive/onlinegiving/search_results.aspx?fundnum=313352

For three years in a row we organized and hosted a Community Safety and Violence Prevention conference.
