Departmental faculty members publish the results of their research in top-tier, peer-reviewed journals and generate  external funding from local, state and national government agencies and private foundations. Teaching activities in the CCJ Department include not only traditional in depth course work, but also intensive research training, especially at the PhD level. CCJ faculty members are actively involved in many local, state, national and international service activities, holding offices in organizations such as the American Society of Criminology and/or editorial positions on major criminological and sociological journals.

Offices are located in Lucas Hall on the UMSL North campus. If calling from a non-UMSL number please dial first 314-516 (XXXX)
