Dr. Geniece Crawford Mondé teaches classes in sociology and criminal justice. Her classes challenge students to examine how social and cultural norms have shaped the U.S. criminal justice system. She encourages students to share their views in class and question taken-for-granted notions about the values and laws that shape much of our society.

Dr. Mondé is always open to working with students on research projects and has had the pleasure of serving on committees for students completing their honors thesis. Her own research focuses on how formerly incarcerated women adjust to life after prison and the use of social media by marginalized populations.
