Ron Mincy is a Maurice V. Russell Professor of Social Policy and Social Work Practice, co-principal investigator of the Fragile Families and Child Wellbeing Study, and a faculty member of the Columbia Population Research Center. Prior to this, he served as senior program officer at the Ford Foundation working on improving U.S. social welfare policies for low-income fathers, especially child support, and workforce development policies. His past work has focused on the effects of policies and programs on the roles that young, disadvantaged men play as fathers and workers. His current research interests surround child support, visitation, and health trajectories of unmarried fathers, and the effects of re-partnering by mothers or fathers on these trajectories.
