Professor Sudie Nallo joined the faculty of the College of Social Work in 2013 and was named Bachelor of Social Work Instructor of the Year in 2016.  She currently serves as the interim coordinator for the Bachelor of Social Work Program and interim Director of the I. DeQuincey Newman Newman Institute for Peace and Social Justice.  Since 2015, Nallo has served as faculty lead for University of South Carolina Study Abroad Global Classroom programs. She has designed short-term international service and service-learning programs in Gujarat, India and Oranjestad, Aruba, with a focus on social service provision from the global context. She is also a faculty associate for the USC Walker Institute. The institute organizes programming to promote campus internationalization, community support for immigrants and refugees, and highlights overseas research and programs. Prior to joining USC, Nallo was vice president of event planning for the United Nations Association African Affairs Committee in New York and the manager of academic partnerships for Cross-Cultural Solutions in New Rochelle, NY.

Nallo’s research interests include identifying effective community mobilization interventions to address institutional racism, racial trauma, and economic and educational disparities among racialized groups.  Nallo has served as program coordinator for South Carolina-Advancing Diversity in Aging Research since from 2015 to 2018. Supported by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), the program aims to increase the number of qualified underrepresented racial and ethnic minority students who wish to pursue scientific graduate studies in science and aging programs.  She has also served as co-principal investigator on a community participatory research project aimed at exploring the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the South.  Additionally, she has served as co-principal investigator on an interdisciplinary research study aimed at increasing and retaining diverse faculty in schools of engineering. 

Outside of USC, Nallo is a resource development associate for the South Carolina Uplift Community Outreach in Columbia. The organization helps individuals and families improve their quality of life by providing safe, secure, and affordable housing and economic security. She assists in program development, implementation, and exploratory research for social entrepreneurship development, including business plan development and cash flow analysis. 

Nallo received her Master of Social Work from the George Warren Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis. She earned her Ph.D. in higher education administration from the University of South Carolina.
