The Richard J. Lundman Graduate Student Teaching Award was founded in recognition of his outstanding teaching and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education. Rick Lundman was a professor at Ohio State for over 40 years where he taught thousands of student colleagues. In addition to his research, he will be forever remembered for his love of teaching and passion for students. The CJRC seeks to honor his memory with the annual Rick Lundman Graduate Student Teaching Award. All graduate instructors and teaching assistants (from any discipline) who instruct on the topics of crime, law, and justice are eligible for this award. The selected award winner will receive $200 from CJRC presented during the Sociology Spring Awards luncheon. The CJRC is pleased to announce the first Richard J. Lundman Graduate Student Teaching Award winner is Alex Fraga.
