Christopher Einolf

Dr. Einolf worked in social services, refugee resettlement, and asylum law before receiving a PhD in sociology from the University of Virginia in 2006. His research focuses on two issues: altruism, volunteering and charitable giving; and human rights and torture. His work on charitable giving and volunteering has been published in Journal of Marriage and Family, Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Social Science Research, and other professional journals. He recently published American in the Philippines 1899-1902: The First Torture Scandal, and has written two other books. His current research focuses on the relationship between generosity within the family and generosity to people outside of it, with studies of how charitable giving and volunteering change when people get married, have children, and divorce, and a study of how married couples make decisions about charitable giving. Dr. Einolf is the chair of the Masters in Nonprofit Management degree and teaches courses in research methods, ethics, and resource development.​
