"I have really enjoyed my time as the department head of CEP and would like to continue to support the department," Schwartz said.

Schwartz is the past chair of the American Psychological Association Division 17 Prevention Section and executive board member of the Council of Counseling Psychology Training Programs. He is currently president-elect for Division 51 (Psychological Study of Men and Masculinity) of the American Psychological Association. Schwartz has published in the area of men and masculinity, prevention and intimate violence. He was awarded the 2008 Researcher of the Year Award from American Psychological Association Division 51 and received the 2011 Fritz and Linn Kuder Early Career Scientist/Practitioner Award and Fellow status in 2013 from the American Psychologist Association Division of Counseling Psychology.
