PhD Student. Social Work/Sociology Candidate

Matthew Bakko

Matthew Bakko is an organizational scholar with a critical concern for how social service systems, organizations, and providers advance both oppression and liberation. Bakko addresses this concern by exploring how social service organizations are impacted by and engage with their external environments, including policy shifts, funding and resource dynamics, and political changes in their institutional and community contexts. His current work and dissertation research specifically explores social service organizations that interface with carceral systems.
