SCCJ is proud to announce Professor Krista Larsen has won the CSSH Outstanding Part-Time Teaching Award! CSSH Teaching Awards are given annually to faculty and teaching graduate students who demonstrate excellence both in and out of their classrooms. Nominations can be initiated by all members of the Northeastern community, including students. Professor Larsen is a great asset to our program and we could not be prouder of her achievements.
Krista Larsen, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. With this award, the committee recognizes Professor Larsen’s commitment to the experiential liberal arts as a practicing attorney; her attention to issues of diversity and inclusion in her “Due Process” course; the time and attention she pays to her students’ learning, often mentoring them outside of class; her engaged citizenship in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice; and her consistently superb student evaluations. As her nominator wrote, Professor Larsen “embraces our experiential learning model by engaging her students with the criminal justice system in multiple ways. Her students frequently get out of the classroom and into the courtrooms and she brings examples from her work to the classroom to contextualize the material. Krista challenges first- and second-year undergraduates as though they were already students in law school.”
