About

Dr. Anne Deepak joined Monmouth University in 2014 and prior to that time taught social work in Texas. As a practitioner, she worked with formerly homeless families and people living with HIV/AIDS. Currently, she is serving her second term on the Council on the Role and Status of Women in Social Work Education and working with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General Prosecutors and Supervision & Training Bureau through the CLEAR Institute on a required cultural diversity and de-escalation training for police officers throughout the state.

Research Interests

Her scholarship and research is focused on the development and application of postcolonial feminist social work perspective to social problems, the impact of international volunteers on NGOs in the Global South, and the examination of the delivery of social justice and diversity content in social work education.
