Professor and founding member of Binghamton University's Department of Social Work, Bronstein also served as associate dean and interim dean of the College of Community and Public Affairs prior to becoming dean in January 2014.

In 2009, she founded the University's Institute for Intergenerational Studies. In this role, Bronstein supports research, education and service delivery across a range of disciplines and professions at Binghamton University in collaboration with organizations across the Southern Tier and beyond.

She has been teaching, practicing, supervising and consulting for over 30 years. Prior to entering academia full-time, she had a rich practice background in family preservation, a school for children with developmental disabilities, hospice and a psychiatric hospital. Bronstein has approximately 50 publications, most of which are in peer-reviewed journals. She created the Index of Interdisciplinary Collaboration, which continues to be utilized and adapted across the world. The article that she published detailing the model on which the index is based has been cited as the eighth most influential social work article of the last decade.

With the Southern Tier as a focus, Bronstein has been a partner in over $5,000,000 in grant funding for projects related primarily to school-community partnerships and services for older adults. In 2011 she was awarded the Leadership in Aging award from the New York Academy of Medicine, Council on Social Work Education and John A. Hartford Foundation. In 2012 she was awarded the first Lois B. Defleur Academic Prize at Binghamton University. She currently serves on the boards of the Eden Alternative, and Family & Children's Service of Ithaca.
