The students selected for the fellowship are leaders on their campuses who demonstrate a commitment to finding solutions for challenges facing communities locally, nationally and internationally.
Rohrback is interested in the criminal justice system and its impact on communities. She studies evidence-based policing strategies as well as the effectiveness of diversion programs and treatment courts in reducing crime and recidivism.
