to host discussion Oct. 29 on white-collar crime
University’s Department of Criminal Justice will sponsor “Crime in the Suites: Corporate and Occupational Deviance” at
7 p.m. on Oct. 29 in the Tuscarora Room at Reisner Dining Hall. The panel is also hosted by the student Criminal Justice Club.
to Dr. Cynthia Koller, assistant professor of criminal justice and panel
moderator, “The panel presentation will hopefully stimulate public and cross-discipline
awareness and dialogue about the issues surrounding white collar crime, such as
the lure employees and corporations encounter when confronted with meeting
unwavering demands with dwindling resources.”
members are Shippensburg faculty from various disciplines who are
familiar with the types of unethical and illegal behavior found in their
respective fields. Panelists are Dr. James E. Benton, associate professor
of accounting and finance; Dr. Jerry Carbo, associate professor of management; Dr.
Laura Patterson, assistant professor of criminal justice; Dr. Lynn F.
Baynum, associate professor of reading/literacy in the teacher education department;
and Dr. Patricia A. Patrick, associate professor of accounting.
to Koller, “It is important for students, educators, and the public to become
more informed as to the nature of white collar crime, and how deviant behavior
can occur in any field.” She said
she hopes the discussion will show students that every profession struggles
with issues of ethics and the public is often misinformed about the nature and
extent of white collar crime occurring in the U.S. and around the world.
