As a professor of criminology at Georgia State University (GSU), my primary functions are teaching, research, and service.1 This webpage publishes (“makes public”) my work activities for annual review, 2022. I share this information because public employees (i.e., taxpaid servants) should try, always, to be more transparent. This page is my most recent attempt, the first time I have published these activities. In the coming years, I will improve these annual reports as I learn from the experience of sharing them. Your feedback is welcome. Any corrections, additions, et cetera will be published on this page.
My department directed me to include the following information in my 2022 annual review materials.2
“An attached file or acknowledgement of completion and verification of your 2022 GSU Annual Report done through the Digital Measures platform.” I hereby acknowledge and verify.
“An attached file of your current vita with all 2022 activities highlighted as yellow text.” The first embedded file, below, is a Word-version of my CV with 2022 activities highlighted yellow.
“An attached file including your completed Faculty Yearly Activity (1 page max) and Faculty Goals for the Current Calendar Year (1 page max).” This file is embedded below, too.
