Lonnie Schaible joined the School of Public Affairs as an assistant professor of Criminal Justice on the Colorado Springs campus in 2009. In 2012, he was hired as a faculty member on the Denver campus. He earned tenure and was promoted to associate professor in 2016 and professor in 2023. His research is wide ranging and has focused on eclectic topics ranging from the causes and correlates of homicide at the national level to the impact of emotional labor and identity on burnout among police. With sociology as his home discipline, he is especially interested in how sociological forces influence outcomes across a broad range of social contexts, especially: communities, neighborhoods, occupations and individuals.Dr. Schaible is also interested in how social scientific research can be used responsibly to affect change and improvement in these contexts. While completing his dissertation, he worked as an analyst for the Spokane Police Department where he had the opportunity to apply his research skills to influence policy and practice. Since returning to academia, he has consulted and been involved in numerous applied evaluations and research partnerships, continuing his interest in the connection between social science and policy.
