Dr. Kristen Stives is an interdisciplinary scholar who approaches questions of criminality and deviance from a sociological and criminological lens. She received her B.S. from Hartwick College, and M.S. and Ph.D. from Mississippi State University. She completed her Ph.D. in Sociology with a concentration in Criminology. Her work centers around questions of criminality and deviance and her research is related to the topics of bullying, incarceration, and the role of education. She has published in peer-reviewed journals including Journal of Criminal Justice Education, Youth and Society, and Criminal Justice Policy Review. In the classroom, Dr. Stives relies on real world application and hands-on assessments. She teaches core and elective courses in criminology and criminal justice related to the topics of juvenile justice, community and institutional corrections, ethics, and theory. At her previous institution, Auburn University at Montgomery, she taught specialty courses on gangs, comparative criminal justice, criminal justice writing, and community and problem-oriented policing.
