Marc Weiner is Associate Research Professor at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. His primary research and teaching interests include quantitative and qualitative research methodologies; survey research planning, design, operations, data analysis; quantitative data modeling; demography and population studies; and social movements and intra- and international power relations. Weiner was the founding President of the New Jersey-Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Association for Public Opinion Research and served on the Executive Council of the Association of Academic Survey Research Organizations.
At the graduate level, Weiner teaches Survey Research Methodology and Advanced Qualitative Methods; at the undergraduate level he teaches Social Movements and Demography and Population Studies. He is also is active in the administration of the undergraduate faculty, and is responsible for the school’s assessment reporting and serves as the EJB Conflict of Interest Monitor.
Weiner received his doctorate in political science from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, in May 2005 for research focusing on the changing role of the American electorate in the political party system. He received a 2002 dissertation research support grant from the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy for his thesis, Fifty Years On: The American Electorate’s Evolving Participation in a Responsible Two-Party System (Gerald M. Pomper, director). He studied political methodology at the University of Michigan (ICPSR, summer 1998) and Princeton (Woodrow Wilson School, fall 1998). He has a juris doctor from Widener University (1986) and a bachelor’s degree in political philosophy from Syracuse University (1982).
Before returning to the academy, he practiced trial law in the New Jersey state and federal courts. During that time he served as a law clerk in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, was certified as a New Jersey Department of Public Advocacy special mediator, and as a special hearing officer for the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development. He is an inactive member of the Bar in New Jersey, Florida, and the District of Columbia, and is particularly fond of miniature schnauzers and Gestalt theory and practice.
