Directory & Faculty Profiles
Dr. Roberts joined the U.S. Army in 1989 and served for 11 years with deployments to Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Haiti, Macedonia, and Kosovo. In May of 2000, he left the Army to start a civilian career. After the tragic events on 9/11, he reentered the service in the Army Reserves as a Chaplain Assistant. Dr. Roberts returned to active duty in 2006, and is currently the Noncommissioned Officer in Charge (NCOIC) of the chaplain section at the United States Army Civil Affairs and Psychological Operations Command (USACAPOC). As such, he oversees a variety of products and services from the chaplain directorate, including research on indigenous religions and cultures, advice and training on the subject of sexual assault prevention, pastoral counseling to unit soldiers, and doctrine development for both the U.S. and Canadian chaplaincies. As a proud UOP alum, his dissertation, entitled "A Comprehensive Plan for Providing Chaplaincy Support to Wounded Female Soldiers: A Delphi Study,” integrated the needs of wounded female soldiers and the expertise of female chaplains to develop a cutting-edge model of support for women in the military. He continues to conduct research oriented towards the intersectionality of gender, race, culture, religion, and organizations.
