Robin DeLuca-Acconi, Ph.D., LCSW, is currently the assistant dean for student services in the School of Social Welfare at Stony Brook University.

She is adapting Speak Truth to Power for undergraduate social work education, teaching students to use a human rights-based approach to social work practice that incorporates the stories of the defenders.

Her research focuses on advocacy, fair globalization, and human rights. She was a school social worker for 20 years, and this experience has led her to research the connection between human rights education and social-emotional learning.
