Professor Leslie’s research focuses on intercultural pastoral theology; womanist and feminist pastoral counseling; pastoral theological implications of sexualized violence, particularly on pastoral counseling issues for survivors of acquaintance rape; and ministry in higher education with young adults. Her most recent pastoral activity has included working with the chaplains at the United States Air Force Academy on matters of sexualized violence and religious intolerance. In 2005 Professor Leslie co-authored the report that brought to light the problem of Christian proselytizing at the Air Force Academy. She is the author of “Three Decades of Women Writing for Their Lives” in Feminist and Womanist Pastoral Theology and the book When Violence Is No Stranger: Pastoral Care and Counseling with Survivors of Acquaintance Rape. Professor Leslie is an ordained elder in the United Methodist
