    Tiffanie-Victoria Jones is the research consultant for the Center for Faculty Professional Development at Clark Atlanta University, as well as an assistant professor, where she teaches in the research sequence in the Master’s program of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work. Additionally, she serves as a member on the Assessment Committee for this program, the co-chair of the Phi Alpha Honor Society, and a member of the Aldridge-McMillan Faculty and Staff Achievement Award Committee. She also serves on dissertation committees. She received her doctoral degree from the Howard University School of Social Work. She earned her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia and her Bachelor of Arts degree from Dillard University in her hometown of New Orleans, LA.

    Jones’ primary research interest is mental health issues in special and vulnerable populations, in particular, athletes. She collaborated with the NFLPA on her dissertation entitled, “The Impact of Hypermasculinity on Mental Health Attitudes in High-Collision Athletes” to conduct research. Her additional scholarship in this area includes the following: an accepted paper on the dissertation topic; a publication and conference presentation in Turkey on early-onset dementia in athletes and the role of social work profession in addressing this problem; posters and oral presentations on athletes’ mental health attitudes; a pilot study on the development of an instrument to measure hypermasculinity, specific to athletes (which will be submitted as a paper); and a host of other scholarly writings on this topic.

    During her matriculation in the Ph.D. program, she served as an instructor for three research-related courses, including data analysis, research methods, and practice evaluation. As well, she worked as a teaching assistant for seven data analysis courses. One of her main duties in this capacity was conducting weekly, optional lab sessions to supplement course lessons. In addition to her academic obligations, she has also served as a statistician on a Master’s thesis.

    In her future endeavors, she intends to continue researching mental health outcomes and well-being of high collision athletes (and related populations), teaching research-related courses, specifically, data analysis and statistics, and conducting statistical consultation for dissertations and theses.

    Jones’ motto for her classes is “Mastery, Excellence, and Competence!” She is the recipient of two Ph.D. exemplar awards – one from the Howard University School of Social Work and the other from the Howard University Graduate School.
