Dr. White, Norm as he prefers, received his Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from the State University New York-University at Albany in 2001.

His research focus is on developmental and life-course theories of crime and the intersection of community and individual risk in the etiology of delinquent offending. His research has been published in Criminology, Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, Journal of Criminal Justice, and Criminal Behaviour and Mental Health.

Norm has worked extensively with the researchers from the Rochester Youth Development Study, the Pittsburgh Youth Study and the Pittsburgh Girl Study to examine the role of educational performance on the development of antisocial and delinquent behavior.

His community work in youth violence prevention has fostered collaborative relationships with local organizations, stakeholders and political leadership. Norm's work brings his students into contact with the local St. Louis community as a learning tool in developing informed and aware practitioners.
