The purpose of this newsletter is to highlight and amplify graduate student accomplishments from the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at Sam Houston State University. This newsletter is student driven by individual submissions. We have divided the newsletter into sections including, students that have accepted job offers, publications (accepted, R&R’s, and under review works), advancement to doctoral candidacy, accepted conference presentations and professional awards, scholarships/grants/sponsored research received, teaching and scholarly exposure, as well as GSO organizational accomplishments in order to highlight all of the amazing things our graduate students are doing. Please welcome us in congratulating our Department’s graduate students and their exemplary accomplishments! There is a lot to be proud of.
