Erika Hargis is a graduate of the University of Indianapolis and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Applied Sociology from that same school. Applied Sociology, Hargis says, “moves beyond examining what we’re doing in certain fields to focus on why we’re doing what we’re doing. And you can’t really improve a system until you understand the why behind it.”
That desire to be part of meaningful change is what brought Hargis to Community Solutions, Inc. “Working here gives me an opportunity to help individuals and organizations adapting to changing realities, and discover new ways to be of service while I’m doing it.” Erika Hargis holds Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and in Criminal Justice from the University of Indianapolis, where she spent her entire college career on the Dean’s List and graduated summa cum laude. As an undergraduate, she served as Vice President and Treasurer for Alpha Phi Sigma, the national Criminal Justice Honors Society. Hargis is also a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success. She is currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in Applied Sociology from the University of Indianapolis.
