Professor and Chair, Division of Justice and Law Administration, Western Connecticut State University

George is a Professor and the Department Chair of the Division of Justice and Law Administration at Western Connecticut State University. It was during his time working as a probation officer in the state’s Judicial Branch when a colleague first planted the idea of teaching in his head. After obtaining a PhD in Criminal Justice, George began teaching at Western Connecticut State University, starting as a part-time adjunct professor and advancing to where he is today as both a full professor and Chair of the department. Needing to supplement the in-class academia with real world exposure, George requires his classes to join him on trips to area prisons where he shows students that all humans, even felons, deserve basic human dignity.
