Message from the Chair
As the Chair of the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, I welcome you to our website. To familiarize yourself with the Department, I encourage you to consult the newsletters available on our website. These informative newsletters highlight departmental activities and achievements each year.
The Department would like to welcome two new faculty members: Professor Michael Campbell (Ph.D. from the University of California, Irvine) and Professor Matt Vogel (Ph.D. from the University at Albany). We are extremely pleased to be joined by these two young scholars. While we welcome these two new colleagues, we say goodbye to another; Dr. Kristy Matsuda completed her three-year research professorship and has returned to California.
The CCJ faculty continues to publish in the leading journals, receive federal research grants, and garner awards. Professor Janet Lauritsen is this year’s recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Activity, becoming the fourth member of the Department to receive this prestigious award. Professor Kristin Carbone-Lopez was recognized by the Missouri House of Representatives for her outstanding contributions to raising awareness of domestic partner violence.
The Department continues to increase its online course offerings for students enrolled in the undergraduate program. With the scheduled development of CRIMIN 2220, Statistics, we will reach our goal of offering online all courses required to complete the BS degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice.
