Dr. Harry Hueston

Professor of Criminal Justice

"I love working with my students. I find that the best learning occurs when my students and I work together in solving issues involving criminal justice and how it will impact their lives in the real world. I also believe books and theory are great but, when applied to real life situations, experience combined with theories and books, while challenging students to think out of their comfort zones and develop their own responses to these issues is my teaching philosophy!"

Dr. Keith Price

Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice

"After working for the Texas prison system for thirty years, my parole to West Texas A&M University is like making it to heaven. Students are fairly easy to manage after dealing with robbers, rapists and murderers and a lot more fun. Come take a class in criminal justice or sociology and learn why it is better to be a student than a convict."

Dr. Dave Rausch

Teel Bivins Professor of Political Science

"I've been involved in politics since I was in elementary school and I helped my father in his campaign for the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. When I arrived at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, I chose political science as my major because I was interested in better understanding people and their quest for power. I had to make a decision in graduate school whether I was going to work in politics or move into academe. I chose academe because I like teaching and working at a university that allows me to teach, research and work in politics when the opportunity presents itself."
