Each month, the Early Bird highlights a few faculty members who have served as subject-matter experts on timely news topics – providing dynamic perspectives on critical issues.

Here’s a sampling from August:

William Gaines, lecturer of criminal justice and criminology, shared his expertise with Fox31 on Aug. 16 about the recent Colorado Springs officer-involved shooting caught on a police body camera.

Krista Griffin, associate professor of literacy, spoke with Denver7 on Aug. 13 about whether cursive should continue to be taught in schools in a technology-driven world.

Rebecca Trammell, associate dean in the College of Professional Studies, was interviewed by Scripps TV on Aug. 19 about how questions about Jeffrey Epstein’s death led to a web of conspiracy theories.
