Gina Robertiello, Ph.D. Chair, Professor of Criminal Justice

Dr. Robertiello designed Felician College’s Criminal Justice Program, which includes four tracks within the major, a minor, a concentration and a certificate.  She teaches most of the theory classes at Felician (including Victimology and Criminology), as well as the Senior Research courses, which require a thesis paper, analysis of data, and a full defense at the end of the term.               

Dr. Robertiello has written over 30 articles, book chapters, book reviews, and encyclopedic entries during the course of her career.  She has also presented Conference Papers at National and Regional locations.  See her vita for a full list of those publications.  She serves on a number of committees at Felician College, and is an active member of the College’s Institutional Review Board, which is an asset for her Senior Research students when they are applying for permission to administer their surveys for their research projects. 

Dr. Robertiello guest lectures, moderates and organizes presentations and workshops, and is actively involved in student advisement.  She has been married for 19 years to her husband Peter, and has three wonderful children; Brianna, Gabriella, and Joseph.  Dr. Robertiello is a class mom to her kids, and her hobbies include reading, scrapbooking, and spending time at the family beach-house.
