Crystal M. Glover, PhD

Research Assistant Professor

After receiving her Ph.D. in Social Psychology from Howard University, Dr. Glover completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, and joined the faculty of the Department of Psychiatry. Her areas of concentration include health co-morbidities of mentally ill adults; integration of vocational rehabilitation and psychiatric services; genetic testing for minorities; and social cognitive processes that facilitate wellness. Currently, she manages the Diabetes Registry Project, a collaboration between the UIC Department of Psychiatry, College of Nursing, and an urban community mental health agency in Chicago named Thresholds. This project focuses on promotion of integrated health care for people with diabetes and co-occurring major mental illness. Another recent study assesses work-related competencies of employment staff and its impact on client outcomes. Other ongoing scholarship examines the importance of race and gender to the experience of stigma, discrimination, and stress among people with disabilities. A fourth research emphasis explores African-American women’s gender-based beliefs and stereotypes, and their impact on self-esteem. Dr. Glover’s quantitative and qualitative research has been published in journals such as Community Mental Health Journal and Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation. She presents her findings at national and international scientific meetings. A member of the Johnson and Johnson Workgroup for Diversity and Cultural Competence in Supported Employment, Dr. Glover also provides continuing education to State of Illinois clinical providers.
