Dr. Delores V. Mullings is an Assistant Professor at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) in the Faculty of Social Work. She has over 35 years of experience working with various populations in community-based agencies including sexual assault centres and shelters for women and their children who experience intimate violence and homelessness. She is a former foster parent, member of the Board of Directors of Halton Children Aids Society, president of the Halton Foster Parent Association and a trained Foster Parent Advocate. Dr. Mullings continues community work in St John’s Newfoundland (NL) as a past vice president and member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Pluralistic Society and a research partner and member of the Multicultural Women’s Organization of NL.
 
Dr. Mullings’ current research interests include investigating the implications of foster mothering for the state, health and social needs of older immigrants, caregivers’ motivation for institutionalizing older Caribbean Canadians, racialization and expression of whiteness in Canadian social policy and the recreation of racism in the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal adjudication process. She has developed a keen interest in teaching pedagogy and is exploring the use of technology to bridge the learning gap through distance. To this end, she has partnered with the University of Vietnam and the University of South Africa to engage students in cross-cultural distance education dialogue and mentorship.
