Nakee Holloway, Ed.D.
Criminologist
Institute on Public Safety & Social Justice 

I have extensive experience in criminal and community justice and behavioral health research. With over seven years of research and evaluation experience, I have led and implemented several large-scale research studies focused on crime reduction and prevention in disenfranchised communities. Currently, I am the Principal Research Investigator for the Restorative Justice Community Court, a ground-breaking court providing emerging adults an opportunity to have felony cases dismissed.

Additionally, I have worked for several years to educate communities of color on socially just topics including but not limited, to the school-to-prison pipeline and transformative justice. Partnering with various stakeholders, including community members and agencies, detention centers, courts, government, and academia, I center my work around assisting with the implementation of violence prevention programs and policies that are beneficial to the community at large.

Please email me if you have questions or would like more information about me.
