Molly Metzger

Molly W. Metzger serves as chair for the Domestic Social and Economic Development concentration within the Master of Social Work program. She is also a faculty director at the Center for Social Development, and a faculty fellow at the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement.

Metzger’s research focuses on local, state and federal housing policies, examining how these policies often reproduce patterns of segregation. She strives to build and share research with a host of community partners, in order to move housing policy toward the goals of racial equity and economic justice.

Metzger's major projects have included a community-based participatory research project on public housing preservation in Chicago, a national analysis of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, and a collaboration with the St. Louis Housing Authority, in which she and her team interviewed Section 8 renters about their housing preferences. She lives in the Tower Grove East neighborhood of south St. Louis and is an active board member at the Metro St. Louis Equal Housing and Opportunity Council.
