Prior to joining the department in 2006, Dr. Randall worked as a prevention research scientist for Iowa State University's Partnerships in Prevention Science Institute, evaluating randomized-controlled trials of family and school based preventive interventions. In addition to the reduction of risk factors for youth substance and conduct problem behaviors, his research focus included the protective factors of increased parenting competencies, student school engagement, and academic success.
He teaches Introduction to Family & Consumer Sciences, Family Systems and Applications, and Family Relations.
In addition to his service as director of the C.C. Wheeler Institute, his current research focuses on (a) the effects of a brief, family-focused intervention on academic success through growth factors of school engagement; (b) a comprehensive investigation of the Duke Older Americans Resources and Services Procedures -a multidimensional functional assessment of older adults, centenarians in particular; and (c) experiential learning in Family and Consumer Sciences (for example, ethics education and service-learning). His recent publications are found in School Psychology Quarterly and Gerontology.
In addition to departmental and college service, Dr. Randall serves on Bradley's General Education Committee.
