The advisory board, announced by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, aims to bridge the divide between research and practice in the field of criminal justice.

“Without question, Frank is a leading scholar in his field and is very deserving of this honor,” says Lawrence J. Johnson, dean of the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services (CECH).

Cullen is a past president of both the American Society of Criminology and the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. He recently received the American Society of Criminology’s 2010 Edwin H. Sutherland Award for outstanding contributions to the field of criminology.
