SWOSU Group Attends Criminal Justice Conference
Twelve students and three professors from the Department of Social Sciences at Southwestern Oklahoma State University recently attended the annual conference of the Oklahoma Criminal Justice Association in Edmond.
Six of the students, under the supervision of Dan Brown (political science), presented posters along with students from Cameron and the University of Central Oklahoma. Three faculty members—Brown, Meghan McGhee (criminal justice) and Philip D. Holley (criminal justice) made formal presentations at the conference as well.
The theme of the conference was “Better Education Through Research.” Angie Baker, director of the Oklahoma Statistical Analysis Unit located within the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, was the keynote speaker.
The association meets annually on a university campus around the state to provide a means for Oklahoma academicians, criminal justice students, and professionals to share research, network, and focus on criminal justice issues in Oklahoma and beyond.
