Lecturer in Sociology
Terrance Hinton, Ph.D., is a lecturer in sociology. As a practitioner-scholar, his work intersects across the criminal justice and public policy and administration field. His most recent project was serving on the Ohio Medicaid Released Enrollees Study (OMRES), where he examined the impact of Medicaid enrollment on recidivism risks for previously incarcerated individuals. This was followed by an extension of the OMRES study in which modeling analyses compared 2021 OMRES analyses results to ODRC administrative data relating to recidivism risk. The project was through the Ohio Colleges of Medicine Government Resource Center (GRC) and was funded by the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (ODRC). Specifically he is interested in research projects that focus on the Ohio Criminal Justice community in the areas of incarceration, reentry, community corrections, public health among the justice involved, recidivism, racial disparities in criminal justice, police-community relationships and criminology.
