Papers

Academic Biography

I am the former attorney for Penn State University at main campus. I also served as attorney for Lincoln University, and Cheyney University. I taught part-time at Penn State and full time at Valley Forge Military College and Cabrini College. I served at DCCC as the Dean of Public Services and Social Science for 11 years and was the former Director for the Center for Paralegal Studies. Having lived a good life, my interests are now more aesthetic than they are pedagogical. I like fighting for the little guy or the down trodden -- always with the intent to make this world a better place.

Theoretical Approach, Experience, and Temperament

Students are currently learning that there are an unfathomable number of opportunities and resources here at DCCC. With all that is going on not only in the class room, but with improvements being made at the college, it is difficult to take it all in. But careful consideration, thoughtful planning, and a fierce work ethic are the hallmarks to our student success stories. As faculty, I am enthused by the buzz I hear in the hallways with students discussing, collaborating and encouraging one another in their courses and to complete their journeys everyday.

Scholarly Interests

  • Ethics, Crime, Law and Deviance are my "favorite" subjects. I am a past Managing Editor for the American Sociological Associations, Crime,Law and Deviance Section Newsletter 2012-2013. I continue to seek various and new ways to dispense the law and legal info. I have written and contributed numerous articles to various legal publications and newspapers. I remain a Contributing Editor to American Jurisprudence, a legal encyclopedia.
