Dr. Laura Agnich Receives University Award for Excellence in Contributions to Service
Dr. Laura Agnich received the University Award for Excellence in Contributions to Service. This award recognizes faculty who “use their academic disciplines to provide non-compensated assistance to the community and region, as well as in the academic arena.” Dr. Agnich engages in service in three primary areas: as faculty advisor to the Mock Mediation Club, through fundraising for Statesboro Regional Sexual Assault Center (SRSAC), and by evaluating active shooter trainings for local police.
The Mock Mediation Club took home a first place award in advocacy at the 2015 International Law School Mediation tournament in March, and the organization actively engages the campus and local community through disseminating conflict resolution skills to Georgia Southern and local K-12 students.
In addition to her university and community service to prevent and reduce the harms caused by violence, Dr. Agnich was recently elected to the Board of Directors of the Southern Criminal Justice Association (SCJA) and serves the discipline of criminology through her engagement with regional, national, and international academic organizations.
