Bio

Steve Steib's primary interest has become helping students convert their dreams into plans and their plans into goals and their goals into realities.

For at least 2 ½ decades his research interests have focused on ways to improve the well being of less advantaged people and families. Steib has pursued this through not for profit organizations, through government agencies, and through think tanks. He feels fortunate to have students who are willing and often eager to engage in these issues.
