Ball State Professor's New Study is a Success

SPA would like to congratulate Jagdish Khubchandani on his successful teen dating violence

Khubchandani, a Ball State University community health education professor, looked at school principals nationwide and the numbers he discovered were unsettling.

He found 76% of the school principals didn't have a protocol in their schools to respond to an incident of teen dating violence. Although 57% of them had helped a teen dating violence survivor, only 27% of principals disciplined perpetrators.

Khubchandani wants to use this study to bring about change.

Khubchandani told SPA, “When I was hired in 2010, I wanted to conduct some studies that required funding for supplies and mailing of surveys. No federal agency or foundation had funds for what I was trying to do. I used the $1500 junior faculty start-up provided by SPA to conduct some of these studies and this is what we have achieved.”
