STEPHENVILLE, Texas—Dr. Kendra Bowen, assistant professor of criminal justice, received a 2014 SAGE Junior Faculty Professional Development Teaching Award during the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences annual conference in Los Angeles.

Bowen is one of 10 recipients who were recognized by ACJS. Created in 2008, the award was developed to recognize new teaching professionals in the criminal justice and criminology disciplines. Each recipient has received a travel stipend to attend the ACJS Professional Development Workshop at the academy’s annual meeting.

“The ACJS annual meeting provides both new and experienced criminologists and criminal justice scholars with a unique opportunity to learn about best practices for teaching and research,” said Jerry Westby, SAGE Publisher.

Bowen earned her bachelor’s of social work from Midwestern State University and a both master of arts in criminology and criminal justice and master of science in social work from the University of Texas at Arlington. She later obtained her Ph.D. in criminology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2011.
