  • Don't Turn Away: Taking a long, hard look at Springfield's Poverty Problem - 417 Magazine - January 2015
    January 27 at 10:37 a.m.Newsmakers
    Getting residents engaged is no small task. Mike Stout, associate professor of sociology and anthropology at Missouri State University, knows first-hand the difficulty of prompting action both from those living in poverty and those with the resources to help address the problem. Stout is one of many members on the Impacting Poverty Commission, and he serves as the director of Missouri State’s Center for Community Engagement. His expertise on how to best mobilize the community landed him a seat at the table. But according to Stout, there’s one seat that’s still sorely missing. “We need to have this conversation with our elected officials,” he says. “We need a lot of resources from state and federal governments, but we can’t get that money unless we bring the politicians to the table.”

    January 27 at 10:34 a.m.Newsmakers
    It's assumed that the many religious congregations in the Ozarks play a major role in helping the poor, the homeless and, for example, victims of abuse. But researchers shouldn't assume, said Catherine Hoegeman, a Missouri State University assistant professor of sociology and anthropology. "It's important to know that, to really find that out," Hoegeman said. "Because right now we don't know it for sure."

Dr. Leslie Echols believes that victims need a personal response and is working on a research project entitled “Are fast friends slow to bully?” that could serve as a preventative measure.
