LINC College-Community Luncheon Featuring Dr. Rebecca Stevens to be Held March 18
March 13, 2008
Dr. Rebecca Stevens, professor of sociology and chair of the Department of Sociology at Mount Union College, will be the featured speaker for the next session of LINC, the college-community luncheon series featuring Mount Union professors and community members discussing current topics, on Tuesday, March 18 at noon in the Campus Grounds of the Hoover-Price Campus Center.
Stevens’ topic will be “Crime 101,” which will be an interactive presentation to demonstrate the myths and truths about safety. She is the coordinator of the new criminal justice major at Mount Union.
A 1980 graduate of Mount Union College, Stevens earned a bachelor of arts degree in sociology and psychology. She then earned master of arts and doctoral degrees from the University of Akron. She has been a member of the faculty at Mount Union since 1996 and was named the College’s Great Teacher in 2001.
LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the College’s exceptional academic reputation.
“In this era of Homeland Security and claims that we are safer, we look forward to Dr. Stevens’ presentation to shed light on this issue, said Paidas.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. on the third Tuesday of the months during the academic year. Sessions are chaired by Scott Ingledue, chairman of the Board of Directors of Alliance Community Hospital, with comments and updates from Dr. Richard F. Giese, president of the College and Paidas.
