Elizabeth Babin, Assistant Professor, started teaching at Cleveland State University in Fall 2009. She currently teaches courses in health communication and communication inquiry, but also enjoys teaching courses in interpersonal communication and conflict and mediation.

Her current research addresses intimate partner violence and sexual health. A piece she co-authored titled “”The relationship between parents’ verbal aggression and young adult children’s’ intimate partner violence victimization and perpetration “is currently in press at Health Communication.
