Pitner R 350x350Breakthrough Star: Dr. Ronald Pitner

Dr. Ronald Pitner, Assistant Professor in the College of Social Work, has been selected as one of this year’s Breakthrough Stars at the University of South Carolina.

The Breakthrough Stars Awards honor faculty from a wide variety of disciplines who show phenomenal commitment to their fields through research and scholarly activity. Dr. Pitner’s innovative, collaborative research has helped lead to the establishment of the Community Empowerment Center (CEC) in Columbia’s Gonzales Gardens. The CEC acts as a catalyst for building the community’s capacity to develop solutions to neighborhood concerns.

Dr. Anna Scheyett, Dean of the COSW, commends Dr. Pitner for this award, saying, “His work is an excellent example of rigorous social work research grounded in full community engagement and addressing the challenging problems of our times.”
