Life at HSU

The best part of being a professor of sociology at HSU is being able to teach a wide variety of courses. I teach everything from intro courses to the senior level capstone course. This allows me to keep up with what is happening in the discipline and makes for interesting semesters.

For the last 11 years, my Urban Sociology class has sponsored a block party with at the Northpark Neighborhood Friendship House. The party is funded by a grant from the HSU Educational Foundation.

One of my favorites things to do is to take travel courses. I have traveled with students to Shreveport, Louisiana, and with my colleague Melissa Milliorn to the Navajo Reservation in Window Rock, Arizona and to Camden, New Jersey to visit Urban Promise.

In 2011, Melissa Milliorn and I made a class trip with three students to visit Urban Promise in Camden, New Jersey. Our last day we visited the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Not long afterwards, one of our students, became a U.S. citizen.
