Dante Bazard

DanteDante Raymond Bazard Jr obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at the University of Prince Edward Island. During his third year he became interested in critical psychology through his interest in institutional power structures and discrimination. Through this research he met his academic advisor Colleen MacQuarrie and started working on presentations and round table discussion with other students. These sessions were focused on discussing various social issues such as patriarchy and feminism, racial discrimination, and the effects of mass incarceration. These experiences led to his interest in the areas of law and psychology, and he decided to pursue a Master’s of Science in Clinical Criminology at the University of Leicester, where he graduated with merit. This was accomplished with the help of his academic advisor Dr. Matt Hopkins. He hopes to pursue a career as a parole office, criminal investigator, or mental health worker. Currently, he is working as a lead researcher at the University of Prince Edward Island on a discourse analytic study of understanding police response to sexual assault crimes.
