Alvaro Takes On New Role as Research Associate Provost

NEW ASSOCIATE PROVOST OF RESEARCH: Eusebio Alvaro, full research professor in the School of Social Science, Policy and Evaluation

There is no doubt that Eusebio Alvaro has made an exceptional reputation for himself. Alvaro has published in the fields of psychology, communication, public health, and medicine, including his book with colleague and professor of psychology Jason Siegel, Understanding Organ Donation: Applied Behavioral Science Perspectives. Together, Alvaro and Siegel have made extraordinary strides in improving the number of organ donors.

Now, Alvaro is adding a new role at Claremont Graduate University as the new associate provost for research, according to a recent announcement by Executive Vice President and Provost Patricia Easton.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to work with Professor Alvaro, the Office of Sponsored Research, and the faculty to support the next chapter of research at our university,” Easton said.

The mission of the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs and Grants (ORSPG) is to stimulate and support external funded research. The office handles federal, state, and foundational support to assist in pre-award activities like grant writing workshops, proposals, and budget preparation to post-award activities like grant accounting and report preparation. Additionally, the ORSPG works closely with Foundations Relations in University Advancement at CGU.

Before becoming Associate Provost, Eusebio Alvaro has been a full research professor in the Division of Behavioral & Organizational Sciences at CGU as well as being the director of the Arizona office of the Institute of Organizational and Program Evaluation Research.

Alvaro’s research centers on the study of social influence processes, health promotion, disease prevention, and medicine with a focus on mass media messages targeting adolescents. In 2014, Alvaro received a two-year, $700,000 grant to research methods for increasing organ donor registration rates among teenagers.

Stewart Donaldson, who serves as the executive director of CGU’s Claremont Evaluation Center, has said that Alvaro is one of the “leading experts in the area of health promotion and disease prevention” at CGU.
