The person behind the lectern...

My name is Daniel Cortese, and I am Professor of Sociology at Governors State University.

This website introduces my student- and community-empowerment approach to teaching and research, as well as my curriculum vita (accurate as of June 2018) and select publications

You will not find me on social media, and this is intentional. Like the old adage of "nothing good happens after midnight," nothing good can come from a 240-character tweet.
