Graduate Students Publish Research
Master of Arts and Social Sciences students in the Criminal Justice and Criminology concentration, Shanna Felix and Justin Hoyle, published a research study in the Journal of Family Strengths along with Drs. Chad Posick and Bryan Miller, and John Stogner from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Their study found that members of the LGBT community are at greater risk of sexual assault than their counterparts and that victims of sexual assault have more alcohol-related complications than those who are not victims of sexual assault. Their results can inform tailored programmatic strategies for addressing the needs of victims from the LGBT community.
