2 P AGE 2 CJUS NEWS Greetings, From the Chair s Desk I am excited to present our first Department newsletter in many years. I am hopeful you will find the content informative. Much has changed at the University and in the Department since the last newsletter. At the University, there is a new interim president, Mr. Brad Martin, as Dr. Shirley Raines retired this past summer. Also Dr. Ralph Faudree retired earlier as Provost. Dr. David Rudd is our new Provost. There was also a change in the Dean s office as longtime Dean, Dr. Henry Kurtz is currently assigned to the Provost s office as a special assistant. The current interim Dean of Arts and Sciences is Dr. Tom Nenon. Departmentally, Dr. Randy Dupont, after seven years of exceptional service, stepped down as Chair prior to the start of the current semester. I am now serving in that capacity. Perhaps no change in the Department is more drastic than the significant growth in our undergraduate enrollment, which has practically doubled in ten years. We will start offering undergraduate online courses beginning in the spring Another major change for the University and Department is the acquisition of Lambuth University in Jackson, TN. The University of Memphis-Lambuth Campus has a vibrant and growing criminology and criminal justice program. There are big plans for Lambuth, including the possibility of establishing an Institute for Public Safety. The future is bright for Lambuth and upcoming newsletters will keep you up to date on subsequent developments. The graduate program has also grown. Dr. Bert Burraston has been appointed to the graduate coordinator s position. The MA program is now in its second year of offering online courses. The first graduate student to complete the online program was Casey Tindell. Many of our graduate students live outside the Memphis, Tennessee area. Another notable change for the Department is related to the new faces here. Although few in number for the size of the enrollment, our faculty is extremely talented and diverse. Many of our faculty members have practical experience in the criminal justice field, which is quite beneficial to our students. The Department has also lost over 125 years of combined experience as Professors Jerry Sprager, David Giacopassi, Richard Janikowski, Margaret Vandiver and Phyllis Betts have retired. The Department s former longtime undergraduate advisor, Donna Huddleston has also retired, along with Linda Davis, the former office coordinator. The Department was fortunate to have these wonderful individuals for so many years. They have left an indelible impression on all they have touched through their instruction, research and service. Be sure to read more in the following pages for information about our current and retired faculty. To all of our current students, I strongly encourage you to consider becoming a member of the Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA). The CJSA is an excellent way to become involved with the Department outside the classroom. For information visit the Department s website. To all of our former students, undergraduate and graduate, feel free to contact us at: to update us on your career. If you have not completed your degree, contact us ASAP to discuss how we can assist you in getting back on track. We are here to help and would like to hear from you.
